Spangenberg Shibley & Liber Investigating Clyde, Ohio, Cancer Cluster Claims

Spangenberg partners Stuart Scott and Peter Brodhead are investigating cancer claims in Sandusky County.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) recently reported that it found elevated levels of PCBs, or polychlorinated biphenyls, in soil samples it took from Whirlpool Park in Clyde, Ohio.

PCBs are manmade chemicals that were banned in 1979, according to the EPA's website.

"Today PCBs can still be released into the environment from poorly maintained hazardous waste sites that contain PCBs; illegal or improper dumping of PCB wastes; leaks or releases from electrical transformers containing PCBs; and disposal of PCB-containing consumer products into municipal or other landfills not designed to handle hazardous waste," the site continued. "PCBs may also be released into the environment by the burning of some wastes in municipal and industrial incinerators."

PCBs have been found to affect the nervous, immune, reproductive, and endocrine systems.

"There is clear evidence that PCBs cause cancer in animals," the EPA's website stated.

Clyde residents affected by the EPA's findings should contact our Cleveland, Ohio-based environmental law and toxic exposure attorneys for a free consultation or call us at 877-696-3303.
