Report: Federal nuclear facility in Kansas City contaminated

The internal report by a consultant does not detail the level of contamination in the 230,000-square-foot area of the Bannister Federal Complex, which has been the focus of growing alarm over pollution and worker health. A second report says an unusually high number of Kansas City plant workers have become ill from exposure to beryllium, a carcinogen that can cause several diseases.
