“ROCKFORD, MI — The multinational conglomerate which manufactures Scotchgard and developed the chemistry that has poisoned water supplies in Michigan and other states wants nothing to do with Wolverine World Wide’s toxic dumping problem.

Minnesota-based 3M told Wolverine to mind its own mess in a Nov. 28 letter that 3M attorneys shared unsolicited with MLive, in which the manufacturer accuses Wolverine of trying to “shift blame for its own environmental practices to 3M.”

‘3M will not participate in response actions due to the environmental practices of Wolverine,’ wrote 3M attorney William A. Brewer III, who declined Wolverine’s request that the manufacturer attend the Nov. 29 townhall meeting in Rockford.”
