Justice Department Subpoenas Documents From DuPont on Teflon Chemical

May 20, 2005 | AP

Del. Chemical giant DuPont is facing a criminal investigation into its use of a controversial chemical in the manufacture of Teflon.

The company says it's been subpoenaed by the Justice Department which is seeking documents about the dangers of an acid called P-F-O-A.

DuPont maintains the substance is harmless. The acid is used to manufacture Teflon coatings for cookware, along with products like car fuel systems, clothing, phone cables and firefighting foam.

The Environmental Protection Agency is seeking (m) millions of dollars in fines against Dupont for alleged violations involving the chemical. The agency says P-F-O-A could pose "a potential risk of developmental and other adverse effects."

Dupont recently agreed to settle a class-action lawsuit in West Virginia over water contamination.
