"Berkey water filter manufacturer New Millennium Concepts is suing the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) over what it says are false claims by the federal agency that its filters are “pesticides.”

Using COVID-19-era regulatory powers, the EPA issued a stop-sales order to several Berkey vendors and distributors in May, resulting in mounting financial losses for the Texas-based water filter company, founded in 1998.

On Aug. 3, New Millennium Concepts filed a lawsuit in a Forth Worth federal court challenging the EPA's stop-sales order as “unjustified persecution.”
New Millennium Concepts agreed to an EPA condition designating Berkey water filters as treated devices, because they use silver to protect the filters that remove pathogens by means of a “tortuous maze of micropores.”
The use of the anti-viral silver in Berkey filters has been found to trap more than 99 percent of COVID-19 strains, Mr. Norred said.

“Silver is often used in pesticides for pesticidal purposes. The EPA has latched on to the use of silver to protect the filter, and said you’re using silver and you are making pesticidal claims—poof, you’re a pesticide.”"
D.C. is utterly corrupt, treasonous, and tyrannical.
NIFO. It's the only way to be sure.

    Looks like political bureaucrats pretending to be scientists again. They have to sting somebody to justify their existence. This is an example the EPA is now a purveyor of its own brand of snake oil and there are a lot of buyers out there, especially virtue signaling politicians. The EPA has far outgrown its charter and should be dismantled. Yeah, NIFO.
