Blue Mozzarella Causes Alarm In Italy

June 20, 2010

Italy (ChattahBox) – Italian officials have launched a major recall through Europe, and a full investigation, after people all over the continent reported that mozzarella cheese was turning blue.

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.

    I had one of these from Eurospin in Italy 10 days ago!! – why are the authorities here so reluctant to name the stores selling this stuff and why is it not all over the news here (Italy) to warn people! I pulled off the blue part thinking it was just some staining from the packaging as it was well in the use by date…and put the rest on a bloody pizza…The first I heard of this was on the BBC…not RAI…I suppose it’s another case of protecting somebodies financial interests…rather than imforming the public…as usual…Anybody know who is the owner of the Eurospin brand?? This info needs to be all over the net here.
