EU warns Italy of tainted Mozzarella

The Europeans Union has expressed concern that Italy has not done enough to contain the recent food scare involving Mozzarella cheese, reported the BBC Thursday.

The cheese was found to have high levels of the substance Dioxin, which has been known to cause certain cancers. The scare has prompted many countries, including Japan and France to ban the import or sales of the certain products.

Officials in Italy have claimed to traced the cheeses back to their origins and destroyed the tainted milk used. However, members of the EU have stated that was not enough and wanted Italy to take further actions. If action is not taken to the EU's satisfaction, they may impose a ban on exporting the dairy products.
