Class action claims on MAI (Maktheshim-Agan Industries) Israel plant:
Maktheshim-Agan Industries is facing a class action lawsuit in Israel for alleged health issues in relation to its formulation plant in Ramat Hovev. Three individuals are claiming that pollution from subsidiary Makhteshim Chemical Works' (MCW) plant has caused them injury. The claim has been filed but has not yet been served to MCW. The action would amount to about $270 million, the claimants say. "MCW cannot estimate the likelihood of the claim and the petition to succeed," the company says.
