KNOW YOUR CHEESE

A cheesemonger on Thursday holds a 24-month-old mimolette cheese at a production site of the French Isigny Ste Mere company in Isigny-sur-Mere, northwestern France. Since March, several hundred kilograms of the bright orange cheese have been held up by US customs because of a warning by the Food and Drug Administration that it contained microscopic cheese mites. The mites are a critical part of the process to produce mimolette, giving it its distinctive grayish crust.Jul 07, 2013
