Whirlpool Releases Results Of Soil Testing In Clyde

Nov 1, 2013

Whirlpool says extensive soil tests show no evidence of illegal dumping or widespread contamination in Clyde, where dozens of people have been sickened with cancer.

The company claims the tests show its washing machine factory has no connection to the cancer cluster that has led to multiple lawsuits by area families. The company has asked a federal judge to dismiss the lawsuits, claiming they are unfounded and irresponsible. The families say the company got the results it paid for and it is trying to avoid responsibility.
