Interstate Bakeries Corp. Ordered to Preserve its Recalled Products
February 20, 1998
Judge Philip Brostein of Cook County ordered Interstate Bakeries Corp. Thursday to temporarily preserve all of its recalled Hostess and Dolly Madison products. Chicago attorney Kenneth Moll had requested the food be saved so it can be tested for asbestos. Moll filed a lawsuit against the company this week claiming asbestos was present at a Schiller Park Hostess plant for more than 25 years. The plant was shut late last month but has since been cleaned by asbestos removal workers and reopened. The judge is expected to rule today about how long the products must be saved.
