Say 'Cheese' -- Carefully

Unpasteurized cheese can carry a bacterial illness

If you've been to France -- or even a fine French restaurant -- you've probably been offered the mouth-watering cheese course.

Turns out there may be danger lurking there. That danger, according to the Texas Department of Health, is brucellosis, primarily a bacterial illness of livestock. But it can be spread to people who work with animals or those who eat unpasteurized dairy products, especially cheese.

Most cheese in America is pasteurized, however.
