Companies like Sterigenics have been polluting Chicago’s southwest and west suburbs with Ethylene Oxide (EtO), while knowing
for decades that EtO has been linked to cancer.
EtO is used as a sterilizing agent and people can be exposed to it in occupational settings or through environmental pollution. It can severely damage DNA, and uncontrolled exposure to EtO can cause the following types of cancer:
It has also linked to birth defects and miscarriages.
Hold the Polluters Responsible
Make sure Sterigenics is held accountable for its callous actions toward the community. If you or a
loved one has developed cancer, faced a miscarriage, or experienced an increase in birth defects due
to exposure to EtO you may have the right to seek compensation.
While Sterigenics has shut down its Willowbrook facility, the problems associated with EtO exposure will continue to haunt families for generations. Join the fight to seek the rightful compensation and justice you deserve.
