"FDA ramps up scrutiny in a new area: cheese"

From The Washington Post:

"Cheese, it turns out, has been on the defensive increasingly over the past year, as federal regulators rachet up their scrutiny of a growing segment of the food business: artisanal cheesemakers.

Since April, the Food and Drug Administration has increased inspections of cheesemaking facilities, launched a review of its regulations and been reassessing the health risks posed by specialty cheeses."

        My point is that this is old news. There has been a LOT of change in the cheese industry, based in part because of the negative attention that a few bad apples drew to bad practices.

        My other point is that dredging up old news has the potential to scare people about a problem that doesn't exist in the way that it did then. What's the point of that?
