Allison Payne: Hostess Twinkies and Dolly Madison employees are serving up a class-action suit about asbestos. The Hostess plant in Schiller Park was shut down last month after officials detected cancer causing asbestos, but employees say there was asbestos in the plant for over 25 years. They also say they were forced to clean up a substance in which they were told was not asbestos and reportedly that is a crime. The lawsuit covers everyone in the country who was exposed to the asbestos by eating hostess products.
