Officials in central Pennsylvania aren't crying over a few thousand gallons of spilled milk. They're sprinkling some lime on it.

Crews sprinkled lime to prevent the milk from curdling, which could cause a horrendous smell and attract flies.

A truck that overturned Thursday near York Springs spilled about 3,000 gallons of milk into a creek. State environmental officials cleaned up about 90 percent of it with vacuum trucks.

Concerns then turned to milk that had seeped into the soil.

A spokeswoman for the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection says putting lime in the soil chews up the milk's fat,
neutralizing the odor.
