A decision from the U.S. Department of Justice Monday says DuPont will not face criminal charges for allegedly hiding information about C8.
The Justice Department has finished it's review of subpoenaed information and documents DuPont gave to the Environmental Protection Agency.
DuPont officials say the decision supports their position that the company acted responsibly in the matter.
In 2005, DuPont agreed to pay 10.5 million dollars in fines, and more than six million for environmental projects, to settle allegations that the company withheld information about potential health risks from C8.
The EPA is still investigating those potential health risks.
