Blue Mozzarella Causes Alarm In Italy
June 20, 2010
According to the reports, it would look fine when they bought it, but the moment they opened the package and air touched the surface, the cheese would turn blue.
It has been dubbed ‘Smurf Cheese’, and officials are worried that it could be a sign of serious contamination, probably of bacteria.
This is not the first scandal to hit the world of Italian mozzarella.
In 2008, it was believed that the buffalo milk being used for the cheese was contaminated with dioxin, a chemical compound that was allegedly found in tainted feed given by the Camorra mafia family.
