Feds Warn Of Asbestos Threat

Workers at closed Omaha plant may have been exposed

Oct 31, 2004 |

A federal health warning has been issued for former workers of a closed Omaha insulation plant that they could have been exposed to a deadly form of asbestos.

The Western Minerals Products plant used vermiculite to manufacture insulation from the 1940s until it closed in 1989. The vermiculite was taken from a mine in Libby, Montana and it was later learned that the mine had a natural deposit of asbestos that contaminated the vermiculite.

The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry is investigating to see if workers at the Omaha plant and 27 other sites around the country were unknowingly exposed to asbestos. Inhalation of asbestos fibers can cause lung diseases including cancer.
