DuPont Co.

A class action has been filed against the chemical giant for allegedly hiding the potential health hazards of its Teflon non stick cookware coatings. The lawsuit seeks to add warning labels on cookware with Teflon and create a fund for medical monitoring of consumers who purchased products containing Teflon. In May, 2005, documents about perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), a chemical used to make Teflon coatings were subpoenaed by the U.S. Justice Department's Environmental Crimes Section. Through those documents it was discovered that DuPont failed disclose negative health data about PFOA for two decades.
