Description

Three Bureau of Prisons' maintenance personnel have charged that they became ill from serious to terminal lead poisoning as a result of exposure to lead particles and dust on the job. They further claim that a massive cover-up was orchestrated by the warden and other BOP employees, all of whom denied that lead had been removed from a room that the men were working in.
