Why can't I find halloumi cheese anywhere?

I've been to 3 Whole Foods (Bedford, Woburn/Winchester, Arlington), Stop and Shop (the crappy one in Lexington), and Market Basket (Burlington), all places where I've bought it many times before. The cheese counter guy at one of the WFs told me there was some sort of milk recall, but they had other cheeses from Cyprus.

Anyone have any insight or, better yet, a place that has halloumi?

      no affiliation, blah blah...

      1. I usually see it at Roche Bros in Quincy so I imagine the other locations must carry it as well.

        1. Sophia's Greek Pantry has it in the large wall fridges.

          1. Bought some at Russo's last week.

              Russo's had some today. I think it was Cypress brand. Goat, sheep and cow milk.
