One commentor on this story:

"I live in Mexico, and here, like in the USA, most cheese is made by big corporations. However, queso fresco can't really be produced that way due to the fact that it has a short shelf life. I eat cheese made on ranches here all the time, never even occurred to me that it might make me sick, never has. it comes to town in a basket with a cloth over it and laurel leaves packed in between the layers of cheese. i might be taking my life into my own hands eating these products, but its a risk I've been willing to take for years without having succumbed to e-coli or botulism or any other deadly diseases."
