plants that poisons the milk

Pat Coleby lists in the sheep book some plants that poison the milk, for example privet. I feed privet in winter sometimes. What does that mean? Does it mean it poisons the milk for lambs or does it poison the milk for humans?
I didn't realize that it poisons us so far though.

I fed my sheep tons of privet last winter and they were very healthy. Japanese honeysuckle I fed too, I just watched what they eat. Now I have a Friesian milker. and she does not touch Rhododendron.

Like I said, I have no clue having very limited experience with sheep.
