Take Back Your Cheese

take-back-your-cheese-web.jpgNew update: Great news! In September, 2011,  we found a great PVC-free plastic wrap and use this healthier option for all cheeses cut and wrapped in-house.

February, 2011: We’re experimenting with new packaging materials for some of our cheeses. Because of the current unavailability of PVC-free plastic wrap, the wrap we use to package our cheese leaches a chemical called DEHA, a potential endocrine disruptor, into the outer two slices of cheese. We are offering three cheeses from the cheese counter that have been wrapped using an alternative (wax paper bags, cellophane sheets or bags, and parchment). Check at the cheese counter for the cheeses that are wrapped with alternative packaging.
