Reporter: Those Twinkies and other snacks recalled in a recent asbestos scare are being dumped in a land-fill near Moline. The Plaintiffs in a class-action lawsuit against theSchiller Park Factory where they were made want the snacks saved for evidence. The suit seeks unspecified damages for consumers and employees and it charges the plant was contaminated with asbestos for 25 years. The Factory was recently shut-down by the EPA after an unlicensed removal of asbestos. Now during that time more than a million snacks were removed from store shelves.
