New York sues 3M, others over firefighting foam

NEW YORK, June 20 (Reuters) - New York has filed a lawsuit seeking to recoup more than $38 million from 3M Co and five other companies to cover the cost of cleaning up environmental contamination caused by toxic chemicals in firefighting foam that they manufactured.
