Question: ChemPlus Corp. manufactured DeCorr, an industrial


ChemPlus Corp. manufactured DeCorr, an industrial chemical widely used to treat various metals to retard corrosion. Gianopoulos was working in a small shop immersing metal parts in a container of DeCorr when a quantity of the chemical spilled on him. After washing off the chemical, Gianopoulos developed a painful rash and blisters. A supervisor contacted ChemPlus and was told that the company had no liability for Gianopoulos’s injuries because there were adequate warnings on the containers. Calls to the Environmental Protection Agency were equally unavailing because the manufacture of DeCorr was in compliance with the Toxic Substance Control Act of 1976.
a. If Gianopoulos can prove that he did not read the warning label, will he be able to recover for his injury?
b. Does the Toxic Substance Control Act require that all chemicals be entirely safe?
c. Are Gianopoulos’s injuries the result of the greenhouse effect?
