Bayer CropScience withheld information from emergency responders after a deadly explosion at a West Virginia chemical plant last summer, and has since used a terrorism-related law to keep some documents secret, a report by the House Energy and Commerce Committee said.
The report by the panel's staff said that Bayer "engaged in a campaign of secrecy by withholding critical information from local, county, and state emergency responders . . . and by providing inaccurate and misleading information to the public."
