Prosecutors investigate cancer among Fiat employees (ANSA) - Turin, December 23 - Prosecutors in the northern city of Turin said Monday they are investigating 60 cases of tumours among former workers at automaker Fiat.

The cases involve workers at several Fiat plants near Turin, including Mirafiori, Avigliana, and Savigliano. Some similar cases from Savigliano had previously been investigated but then dismissed.

Turin prosecutors are said to be working with local health authorities to build a health history of staff working at Fiat since the 1950s.
