“Bathtub” cheese sellers face criminal charges

A Southern California couple are facing criminal charges after allegedly being caught with 375 pounds of illegal soft cheese — often referred to as “bathtub” cheese — at an open-air market in San Bernardino County.

The products can cause serious illness because of contaminants such as listeria, salmonella or E. coli, officials with the California Department of Food and Agriculture said.

“Illegally produced cheese is a serious threat to public health,” said CDFA Secretary A.G. Kawamura. “We urge consumers to protect their families and avoid the purchase of illegally produced products.”

    My mind is all jacked up from the Dallas media…I was thinking the story was about the heroin/Tylenol PM kind of “cheese.” Not until mid-article did I realize it was speaking of the original kind, consumed with crackers!
