Wintek to be sued over screen cleaner poisoning

Posted on Monday, May 17 2010 @ 21:01:36 CEST by

Apple Insider reports 44 employees have sued Wintek over alleged poisoning while cleaning glass screens of Apple's iPhone with n-hexane, a chemical that can cause nerve damage and paralysis.
A total 44 workers based in Suzhou, China, plan to sue the Taiwanese manufacturer, according to Stratfor Global Intelligence. The report, relayed by Barron's, states that at least 62 Wintek workers have been hospitalized since August of 2009 after exposure to N-hexane. The chemical reportedly can cause nerve damage and paralysis.

The workers claim that the factory manager in China forced the workers to use n-hexane instead of alcohol because the chemical dries faster and leaves fewer streaks on glass. That factory manager has since been fired.

The report noted that "lawsuits of any kind are uncommon in China." Typically, disputes are settled "quietly behind closed doors."
