Dow Corning sets claims deadline

Dow Corning Corp., which is being reorganized under chapter 11 of U.S. Bankruptcy Code, is alerting the public that persons with possible claims for problems they believe are caused by silicone implants manufactured by the corporation should file the claim by Jan. 15, 1997. The largest class of potential claimants are those who have silicone breast implants manufactured by Dow Corning. However, the notice applies to silicone-based products manufactured or sold by Dow Corning Wright Corp. The products includes orthopaedic joint implants used in fingers, toes and wrists and metal orthopaedic joint implants used in knees, hips and wrists.
