Clyde Cancer Cluster Plaintiffs Represented by Dewsnup, King & Olsen File a Lawsuit Against Whirlpool Corp (2)

16 June 2013 Published in News
A federal class action lawsuit was filed on Tuesday against Whirlpool Corp. regarding the Clyde Cancer Cluster. The lawsuit points to a new possible cause for the cancer cluster, linking the cancer cases to exposure to benzaldehyde, a compound that was found in the attics of five different homes  within a mile of Whirlpool's plant in Clyde. Whirlpool uses the compound in the porcelain process of manufacturing appliances at their Clyde plant. The families involved in the recently filed suit hired a consultant who collected dust samples from their homes. Their attorney, Alan Mortensen of Dewsnup, King & Olsen, said the dust samples revealed levels of benzaldehyde far above the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency standards. He goes on to say that the results provide the parents of these families some hope that they are going to get the truth now, but it's devastating to the city of Clyde.
