If you love cheese, sign this petition.

The FDA has forbidden the use of wooden boards for aging cheese. They did this without any public comment. This basically puts all artisan cheese makers out of business.

And there is NO SCIENTIFIC REASON FOR IT.

Please read this article on The Huffington Post and then follow the link to WhiteHouse.Gov and sign the petition.

I love cheese and this decision smacks of lobbying by Kraft and other “cheese” giants looking to put the little guys out of business.

  1. It’s hard enough to find unpasteurized cheese outside of Europe and now this. The Western World needs to relax and start enjoying a good thing.

      I hear you. If you can get your hands on the milk, you can make your own. I took a cheese making class at a local organic nursery and some of the cheeses are pretty simple. It’s getting the milk that’s hard.
