Jimmy Slaughter Quoted in E&E Daily on Federal Bill to Require Notice of Food Grown Using Biosolids Fertilizer
Principal Jimmy Slaughter (Washington, DC) was quoted in a February 6 article in E&E Daily titled "Bill Would Require Notification for Food Produced on 'Sewage Sludge' Land." The recently introduced federal legislation would require labels on meat, chicken, and produce notifying consumers that the food was produced on soil fertilized with biosolids.
Jimmy noted that "similar legislative efforts have failed, for good reason. Recycling biosolids to farmland is safe and good for both the environment and cities. Labeling and notice requirements are expensive, unnecessary and are tools of anti-biosolids activists to stigmatize an essential recycling practice."
