Do you have these cheeses in your fridge?

According to the Food Safety Authority of Ireland, eating the cheese could lead to humans contracting the infection.

The FSAI said:

"Corleggy Cheese is recalling its Cavanbert and Drumlin raw cows’ milk cheeses that were made with milk from a herd in which animals tested positive for tuberculosis (TB). Mycobacterium bovis causes TB in cattle and consumption of contaminated dairy products can cause human TB.

"No other Corleggy Cheese products are implicated.  Cavanbert Cheese and Drumlin Cheese with best before dates after 14/2/19 and 13/3/19 respectively are not subject to this recall."
