Default Bio Solids?

How do you feel about Bio-Solids being included as an ingredient in organic compost? Much to my surprise it is here in Montana. Can this really be happening?

Personally I cannot agree that I want it in my garden, mainly because you can’t know where it came from or if it was processed and sterilized properly
It is the microbes present in good quality plant based compost that you want in your garden. Nobody needs to sterilize plant based compost.
I think that for my own garden home made compost where I am sure of what’s in it is the ideal soil booster.
Use it on your trees shrubs lawn or flowers, I would use something else for edibles

Scary stuff. Organic really is useless now since sewage and hydroponic produce can be labeled organic. As with most things you have to do your research and decipher the BS.

Makes one wonder about sewage being treated by the city and used for drinking water in some places.
