China/USA: Car battery maker in poisoning storm

Battery manufacturer Johnson Controls is at the centre of huge controversy in Shanghai, China, over potential lead poisoning.

Production at two factories has been halted after 21 children in a residential area suffered lead poisoning and Ju Chunfang, a senior official from Pudong’s Environmental Protection Department, has pinpointed Johnson Controls as the likely source.

Of the 21 children confirmed to have high levels of lead in their blood, 10 have more than 250micrograms per litre and have been sent to Xinhau Hospital for treatment.

The report in The Global Times suggests that Johnson Controls has used 20,060 tons of lead during the past nine months.
