October 23, 2008|TIMES WIRE REPORTS

Hundreds of elevator buttons in France will be replaced because authorities found radioactive materials from India at a supplier factory, a source at manufacturer Otis said.

The French Nuclear Safety Authority said about 20 workers at the plant run by the firm Mafelec had been exposed to radioactivity above legal norms.

The source at Otis, who declined to be named, said there was no risk to people's health.
