EPA classifies milk as "hazardous waste"

You can't make this stuff up. Although, given the growth hormones these cows are injected with, which gives children cancer, I suppose you could say it's hazardous waste, although I'm not sure this is what the EPA had in mind.

    9 and 10 News -

    New EPA regulations have some Northern Michigan dairy farmers crying over spilled milk.

    The Environmental Protection Agency intends to classify milk as a hazardous waste; in the same category as oil.

    That means, farmers would have to come up with an oil spill prevention plan which could cost them thousands of dollars.

    The Senate Agricultural Committee passed a resolution today urging the EPA to take back those regulations.
