Egg Controversy

Natalie Walston of member station WMUB reports on the controversy in Central Ohio over the Buckeye Egg Farm, whose 15 million hens attract so many flies that neighbors are trying to have it shut down. The state environmental protection agency and the Ohio Attorney General nearly succeeded in doing that recently, but jurisdiction for Buckeye Farms was handed from the state EPA to the Ohio Agriculture Department. An official there says they don't want to close down the farm, but force it to do something about the fly problem.
