Frontline - A Dangerous Business

More than six years after FRONTLINE, The New York Times and the CBC first reported on McWane Inc.'s worker safety and environmental record, the final case pending against the corporation ended.
McWane was fined $8 million for dozens of safety and environmental crimes at its New Jersey plant, Atlantic States Cast Iron Pipe Company. Four of the plant's managers received prison sentences ranging from 6 months to 70 months. The case was one of several lawsuits brought by federal prosecutors in a multi-state investigation that began in 2003 into McWane's operations (see box below listing the prosecutions).
