KIHEUNG, South Korea (Reuters) – The world’s top memory chipmaker, Samsung Electronics, said it will launch independent reviews in response to reports that toxic materials used in chip making may have caused cancer in some of its employees.

South Korea’s Samsung has been under pressure by some social and civic groups to take responsibility for the incidents, which were reported until late 2000s and for which a government investigation was conducted in 2007 and 2008.
