Hold the Queso: 'Queso Fresco' Cheeses May Pose Health RiskTopics: Health Issues
Some soft cheeses commonly used in Mexican and Latin cooking may present a health risk, according to a new FDA warning.
The agency has issued a health advisory on certain soft cheeses made from raw, unpasteurized milk after cases of tuberculosis in New York City were recently linked to people eating "queso fresco" style cheeses imported from Mexico.
Officials say the raw milk soft cheeses of biggest concern are those made in Mexico and Central American countries.
