G&E files Suit against Chicago-Area Sterilization Companies for Contaminating Air with Cancer-Causing Ethylene Oxide

On behalf of residents living in communities north of Chicago, G&E filed a complaint against Medline Industries, Inc, Steris Corporation, and other medical sterilization companies seeking damages related to defendants’ dangerous emission of Ethylene Oxide. The toxic gas is known to cause cancer, yet was knowingly emitted into the atmosphere for decades by defendants, the complaint alleges. The suit seeks to hold these companies responsible for their reckless behavior by paying affected individuals for costs associated with monitoring for the development of certain types of cancer, blood disorders, and other organ damage.
