  • Pesticide leaves Latin American banana workers sterile

    by the El Reportero wire services

    Approximately 5,000 agricultural workers from Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras and Panama have filed five lawsuits in the United States, claiming they were left sterile due to the exposure to the pesticide, DBCP, in the 1970s.

    Jury selection for the first of the lawsuits is scheduled to begin Tuesday in Los Angeles County Superior Court.
