CPI Industries

Palo Alto, CA: CPI Industries was found guilty of storing 600 pounds of Potassium Cyanide and 4000 pounds of Nitric Acid on their property line next to Barron Park residents. Experts' claim that as little as 10mg of Potassium cyanide can cause a person to pass out and if left untreated it can lead to death within 20 minutes. CPI settled with the city of Palo Alto for releasing these toxic gases into Barron Park. Initially claimed to be an employee error, the charge was later changed by the Palo Alto Fire Department to be inconclusive evidence. The settlement calls for no admission of guilt and a $20,000 fine. (Jan-22-07) [PALO ALTO ONLINE: CPI FINED]
