KANSAS CITY — The Environmental Protection Agency announced a second round of air tests at the Bannister Federal Complex in Kansas City showed no health concerns.
The EPA's regional office in Kansas City, Kan., said Thursday that indoor air tests for several forms of PCBs, toxic organic pollutants, at two buildings raised no health concerns. Earlier testing for PCBs also showed no problems.
PCBs have been banned for years and have been linked to cancer.
Also this week, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health said initial results of a health evaluation of employees at the complex would be ready in late August at the earliest. Results had been expected in June.
The 310-acre complex has about 5,000 employees, has housed various federal facilities and has been the subject of several environmental inquiries.
