Factory makes bad mozzarella; 13 arrested Published: May 13, 2014

Police in Italy have shut down a mozzarella factory and arrested 13 people after finding that prized local buffalo milk was being cut with cheaper imported cow milk, according to The Associated Press.

Authorities also found that the cheese, produced near the southern town of Caserta, contained as much as 20 times permissible levels of bacteria, said Carabinieri Police Maj. Alfonso Pannone.

Police on Monday also shut down seven stores selling the cheese in the Campania region which includes Naples, the AP reports.
