SANDUSKY COUNTY, OH (Toledo News Now) -
A town hall meeting was held Monday
night at Fremont Ross High School for the public to ask questions regarding the
lawsuit filed against Whirlpool Corporation by families in the Sandusky County
The families are suing Whirlpool for
allegedly dumping toxins that caused multiple cancer cases in eastern Sandusky
The attorneys who filed the suit on
behalf of the families two weeks ago say they have been fielding a number of
phone calls from the public, with questions about recent testing which the
families claim shows a toxic chemical in their attics, benzaldehyde. The
families believe it was put into the air by Whirlpool during their
manufacturing process, and they say it likely caused the cancer that has
claimed three children's lives and sickened many others.
The attorneys say others have come
forward with cancer, wondering if it may be connected.
So dozens came together to learn
more about the lawsuit.
"I am from Clyde, originally," said
Juanita Wright at the meeting. "My son had cancer at 27 and we had already
moved from Clyde, but I just want to know what's going on and if it's got anything
to do with that."
Whirlpool representatives were not
at the meeting, but said last week that there is no scientific evidence that
shows the company is responsible for causing the cancer.
