Whirlpool faces lawsuit over cancer-causing chemicals

Whirlpool Corporation is dealing with the fallout from a multi-million dollar lawsuit.

The lawsuit attempts to link the Benton Harbor based company and others to a child cancer cluster in Ohio.

The EPA has said high levels of a cancer-causing chemical were found in soil samples from a former Whirlpool park in Clyde, Ohio.

The EPA findings didn't link any of those contaminates to the cancer cluster, however.

Whirlpool said in a statement it is very interested in figuring out the facts.
