5. Untreated versus treated waste
The problem associated with imported green veggies comes from the application of uncomposted/undigested, untreated waste directly to the plants. Neglecting to wash the products before use contributed as well.

Land applied sewage sludge in the U.S. is covered by very specific regulations includes pathogens and vectors. There is no similarity between the Louisville pelletized material and the liquid ca-ca sprayed on the plants in Central and South America.
