“These results indicate no health concerns, based on the latest guidance provided by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention,” the agencies said.

Freedom Industries disclosed 12 days after the Jan. 9 leak that PPH was a second chemical that was in the storage tank that also contained Crude MCHM.
