‘Mr. Cheese’ pays price for sickening Utah clients with salmonella
An update on the fate of "Mr. Cheese," the man who sold bad cheese to residents of Salt Lake City, from Julia Lyon
at The Salt Lake Tribune:
The man behind the bad cheese, Fidel Gomez, will be paying $500 for violations of the Utah Dairy Act, according to a Utah Department of Agriculture and Food news release Thursday.
Gomez, whose homemade cheese sickened people with salmonella, failed to label his cheese and illegally manufactured and distributed it without a permit.
Investigators say that Gomez, whom they previously called Mr. Cheese, made his queso fresco without proper sanitation equipment. Some of that cheese was sold at a Salt Lake Valley restaurant.
