File a lawsuit over TCE's dangerous health effects
Trichloroethylene (TCE) is a colorless liquid used as a solvent for cleaning metal parts. Most countries currently prohibit its use in machinery that processes food, but it is still found in many industrial plants and factories, where workers are likely to be exposed to it. Additionally, it is one of the most common organic contaminants in groundwater (Atsdr.com).
