TOLEDO, Ohio — The owners of polluted land in northern Ohio are joining a civil lawsuit filed by families whose children have been among dozens sickened in a cancer cluster.

The group's lawsuit against Whirlpool Corp. links the company's washing machine factory in the northern Ohio city of Clyde to the cancer cases.

Benton Harbor, Michigan-based Whirlpool says the allegations are baseless and not based on scientific or medical fact.

The lawsuit says a chemical compound suspected of causing cancer came from the Whirlpool plant near where 35 children have been diagnosed with cancer and three have died since the mid-1990s.

The Sandusky Register (http://bit.ly/Y5GRju ) reports that the owners of what was once known as Whirlpool Park joined the lawsuit that claims the company dumped potentially cancer-causing waste at the site.
