Not sure how you came to a conclusion that "Milo Study - Not Safe" makes your headline - the article does not mention anything about Milorganite, it is NOT a study of Milorganite, etc. Class B Biosolids are completely different from consumer products like Milorganite, Bay State, OceanGrow, etc -- these products are Class A product and as such "biosolids are designated as Class A Biosolids. This allows the use of these biosolids to fertilize any crop, including agriculture crops, turf, horticulture and food crops. No special soil incorporation or other restrictions apply to the use of Class A biosolids.".

Please explain how those gaps lead to the conclusions you're headlining....

Milorganite, Bay State and OceanGro all meet the "EQ" (highest "exceptional quality") standards rating for Class A.

Half-kidding.

That’s pretty much what the Amish farmers in Pa do. The smell is awful.
