A lawsuit accusing the company that makes Splenda of noise pollution from a factory in McIntosh, Alabama, has been settled before going to trial. More than two dozen Washington County residents sued Tate & Lyle in 2006, accusing the company’s nearby factory of disrupting their lives with noxious odors and excessive noise. A federal judge dismissed odor allegations and urged all of the lawyers to resolve the remaining differences over the noise. The case was settled prior to the day when the trial was to start in federal court. Terms of the agreement hadn’t been released at press time for this issue.
