A cheesemonger checks mimolette cheese at a production site of the French Isigny Ste Mere company on July 4, 2013 in Isigny-sur-Mere, northwestern France. After more than a tonne of mimolette cheese has been held up in customs for 3 months, US officials have effectively banned the French speciality, calling it putrid and unfit for food. Since March, several hundred pounds of the bright orange cheese have been held up by US customs because of a warning by the Food and Drug Administration that it contained microscopic cheese mites. The mites are a critical part of the process to produce mimolette, giving it its distinctive grayish crust. AFP PHOTO CHARLY TRIBALLEAU (Photo credit should read CHARLY TRIBALLEAU/AFP/Getty Images)
