NEW YORK, April 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Exide Technologies

Lifshitz Law Firm announces that it is investigating potential claims against
the board of directors of Exide Technologies (XIDE).  On March 22, 2013 the
South Coast Air Quality Management District (AQMD) announced it had reviewed
and approved a health risk assessment from Exide Technologies showing that the
Vernon facility is causing a potential health impact to residents in a large
geographical area that includes portions of Vernon, Maywood, Huntington Park,
Commerce, Boyle Heights and unincorporated areas of east Los Angeles.  Under a
California law commonly known as the Toxic Hot Spots program, facilities that
emit toxic air pollutants must develop health risk assessments using
scientific tools to estimate the risk of cancer as well as non-cancer health
effects to residents.  If the risk is higher than 25 in 1 million, the
facility must develop and implement a plan to reduce it below that threshold
within three years.  The AQMD stated that Exide's health risk assessment shows
a maximum cancer risk of 156 in 1 million, mostly due to arsenic emissions, to
workers at a facility in Vernon next to Exide.
