A lawsuit filed by
families in the Clyde Cancer Cluster says dust samplings done in the attics of
their Clyde homes in March revealed benzaldehyde.
The families allege

Whirlpool, its employees, and the community against these allegations.
Whirlpool has been a part of the fabric of the Clyde community for more than 60
years and we remain committed to acting responsibly."
