The FDA council has just recently banned the old fashioned way of making cheese. The use of wood.
FDA's choice shall not only damage cheese makers but also stop importion of cheese from all sorts of countries as Canadian and European Union have not yet changed from the using wood for aging cheese.
Famous and industrial cheese makers such as Kraft are safe. They don’t make cheese, they manufacture cheese, and as such they do not follow the centuries old wood cheese style. But for small businesses and artisan cheese makers, wood boards are in fact essential to the making of cheese. In sum, small businesses who specialize in artisan cheeses will likely be destroyed by this decision by the FDA
