Italy banned the sale of mozzarella

April 2 2008

Favorite delicacy Italians - mozzarella made from buffalo milk, will disappear from the shelves of Italian shops and restaurants from the menu, at least ten days in connection with the discovery in its composition of a hazardous substance dioxin, local media reported.

Decision to temporarily ban the sale of mozzarella in Italy has taken the Government jointly with the European Commission. It will enter into force in the coming days, say media.

Mozzarella cheese made from buffalo milk, is produced mainly in the southern region of Campania. According to experts, the cause of dioxin in breast milk was the fact that the animals were grazing in the contaminated areas due to problems with garbage disposal, according to RIA Novosti.
