Bloglines - DuPont Hit With $5 Billion Suit Over Teflon Risks
Bloglines user Lawboat (firstname.lastname@example.org) has sent this item to you.
A $5 billion class action is being filed against DuPont saying the company failed to warn consumers about Teflon-related dangers. "DuPont has known for over 20 years that the Teflon product and the ... chemical it contains causes cancer in laboratory animals," said one of the Miami-based lawyers filing suit in federal courts in eight states. "I don't have to prove that it causes cancer. I only have to prove that DuPont lied in a massive attempt to continue selling their product."
