Uniforms manufactured by Twin Hill, a unit of Men's Wearhouse, have sickened thousands of American Airlines employees. Symptoms have included hives, rashes, swollen faces and eyes, and respiratory problems.  While the manufacturer insists the uniforms are safe, a study by the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) identified irritant and allergic compounds in some of the uniforms. NIOSH recommends that American Airlines retain pay and benefits for employees who have "physician-diagnosed health problems related to the uniform from exposure."
