For years, several thousand Chinese workers at four factories owned by Gold Peak International made nickel-cadmium batteries using hand tools and simple machines for major U.S. distributors such as Rayovac, Panasonic, Eveready and Energizer. No one told them cadmium is a carcinogen capable of causing severe bone pain, kidney failure and death. Hundreds of these workers suffered health problems such as severe headaches, sore throats and vomiting as a result of exposure to cadmium. Some died. [noted as Information due to age of report]
