We use the experimental limit on the interference of M1 and E2 multipoles in the γ decay of 57Fe to bound the time-reversal-violating parity-conserving ρNN vertex. Our approach is a large-basis shell-model calculation of the interference. We find an upper limit on the parameter g¯ρ, the relative strength of the T-violating ρNN vertex, of close to 10^(-2), a value similar to the best limits from other experiments.
