Tropicana Products, Inc. employees exposed to asbestos

If you wonder how a company that manufactures fruit juice can expose workers to asbestos, the answer is simple – asbestos exposure would occur during the last century in the factories in which the juice was made. More specifically, the equipment that was prone to reaching high temperatures was maintained with asbestos insulation and gaskets. Even though the risk of developing a serious disease following asbestos exposure in a Tropicana Products, Inc. factory is not as high as that implied by having worked in a shipyard, for instance, it can still happen. The following are the occupational groups that may have been exposed to asbestos by this company during the last century:

A significant number of Tropicana Products, Inc. employees would have to operate machinery and equipment with asbestos, which led to toxic fibers being released in the air and subsequently inhaled or ingested by workers. Furthermore, the very buildings in which employees had to perform their jobs were constructed with asbestos products such as floor tiles, insulation, bricks, and drywall. The workers responsible for maintaining and repairing the machinery and equipment were at moderate risk of asbestos exposure as well in Tropicana Products, Inc. factories.

Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Tropicana Products, Inc. workers

Occurring when a person breathes in or swallows asbestos fibers from indirect sources, secondary asbestos exposure was quite common during the last century, as workers who came in contact with the mineral would bring home toxic fibers on their clothes, as well as on their skin, hair, and shoes. By greeting the employee and laundering their work clothes, family members could easily inhale or ingest asbestos fibers. Over the years, asbestos fibers would accumulate inside their bodies, endangering their health.
