MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. (KGO) -- A new report out today finds some Google employees may have been exposed to high levels of a hazardous chemical known to cause cancer.
According to the Center for Investigative Reporting, records show more than 1,000 employees at the company's new satellite campus in Mountain View may have been affected.
From mid-November to mid-January a critical part of the ventilation system was shut down. The campus sits on a 400 acre superfund toxic waste site near Middlefield Road, Whisman Road and Ellis Street. A Google spokesperson says employees were never in danger.
