Sweet Jesus: Whole Foods No Longer Getting Brillat-Savarin Due to FDA?!

Wife reports that the cheese lady at Whole Foods (here in SF) said that they are no longer getting Brillat-Savarin due to FDA constraints.

This. Sucks.

Does anyone know of any petition or activist efforts to stop this bureaucratic overreach?

  1. Here's a notice from the FDA about importing soft Brie like French cheeses. The concern is over Listeria monocytogenes, and whether particular plants are adequately inspected.

      1. re: pikawicca

        A quick web search did not turn up another mention of this particular type being band.

      2. It will come out next week as Brillat-Savarin 365.

        1. Can't really understand that because I just saw it in stop n shop yesterday. And by the way I'm giving away my best kept secret.... Brillat savarin at stop and shop and it's Waaaay under priced! Something like $20/wheel

          1. Murray's Cheese in Grand Central had a lot of Brillat Savarin on hand yesterday, so whatever the issue at Whole Foods, it's not the FDA.
