South Africa blocks shipment of cheese contaminated with E.coli

11th November 2011

Around 22 tonnes of Irish cheddar cheese has been quarantined in South Africa after unacceptable levels of E coli bacteria were found in a shipment. The cargo was shipped into Durban Port in August and isolated upon arrival because safety officials deemed the cargo "too risky".

Yesterday, a port health spokesman said the container would be returned to Ireland. "The cheese has been sealed off, and will not be allowed into South Africa," he said.
