$5 Billion Class Action Filed Against Teflon Maker DuPont | Pintas & Mullins Law Firm

Two lawfirms in Florida recently filed a class action lawsuit against DuPont alleging that a chemical in Teflon causes cancer and other health problems. The suspect chemical in Teflon is called perfluorooctanoic acid and its salts, known as PFOA, or C-8. The lawsuit asks the giant chemical company to provide medical monitoring to the millions potentially effected by PFOA, warnings placed on all Teflon products, and more scientific research regarding the health effects of PFOA.
