A Florida man who lived on the former Warminster military base as a teenager and developed testicular cancer twice as an adult is suing several manufacturers of firefighting foams, used for decades at area military bases and believed to be the source the perfluorinated chemicals PFOS and PFOA found in groundwater and drinking water.
The firefighting foams, used for decades at the former Naval Air Warfare Center and other nearby bases are believed to be the source the perfluorinated chemicals PFOS and PFOA found in area groundwater and drinking water.
Napoli Shkolnik of Marlton, New Jersey, along with another law firm, filed the lawsuit Friday in Montgomery County court on behalf of John Eynon, 44, of Jupiter, Florida. It names The 3M Co., Angus Fire, Ansul, Buckeye Fire Protection Co., Chemguard and National Foam as defendants.
