EPA probes scientist dismissal

An interesting article from the Royal Society of Chemistry reported an ongoing internal investigation by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regarding the dismissal of one of its scientist Deborah Rice.

Rice was accused of bias by the American Chemistry Council and urged the agency of her dismissal when she made a public statement against the safety of a certain flame retardant, according to the article.

The House of Representatives is also investigating the situation and asked both the EPA and ACC to provide documentation on the incident.
