An abandoned Indalex plant still contained personnel records. Employee names, Social Security numbers, medical records, addresses, and other sensitive information were exposed when scavengers looking for aluminum and other materials ravaged the abandoned plant.  The plant was closed in 2008 and Indalex filed for bankruptcy in 2009.  Indalex received clearance from a bankruptcy court to officially abandon the plant in 2010.  The damage was discovered when 40 workers from the Stanislaus County jail alternative work program cleared the plant.
