For five years, Maryland-based chicken seller Perdue has been seeking approval for a soybean-crushing factory in Pennsylvania. Instead of properly disposing of large amounts of waste hexane gas, Perdue wants its factory to save money by releasing that dangerous neurotoxin into the air of the Susquehanna Valley -- one of the already most-polluted areas in the U.S.
For five years, Susquehanna Valley media has NOT reported:
The millions of pounds of waste hexane gas that Perdue soybean factories have long been releasing into Virginia and Maryland air.
The nonstop harm being needlessly done to Virginia and Maryland air, food, water, farms, businesses, schools, churches, and families.
The fact that -- after Perdue executives publicly boasted not being afraid of breathing hexane -- they are now planning to safely move 150 executive offices out of Maryland and far away from their own Maryland hexane pollution.
