WAUKESHA (AP) - Advocates for the hungry are concerned that tens of thousands of gallons of milk and other dairy products sitting in a shuttered Golden Guernsey plant in Waukesha will go to waste.
The 83-year-old dairy processor closed abruptly last Saturday and its owner, OpenGate Capital, filed for bankruptcy protection in Delaware court. The sudden closure left more than 100 people without jobs and had schools scrambling to line up new milk suppliers.
Milk, cottage cheese, butter and eggs remain in the plant's coolers. Longtime employee Robert Storm estimates there's 150,000 to 200,000 gallons of dairy product that could go to waste.
Golden Guernsey trustee Charles Stanziale Jr. tells WISN-TV he's concerned about liability if the products were given away. Hunger Task Force executive director Sherrie Tussler is appealing to Stanziale, citing a state law that protects such donations.
