Alabamans warned not to eat cheese spilled on highway by overturned truck
DeKalb Emergency Management Agency says highway cheese is unfit for human consumption.
The five-second rule doesn’t apply here.
When an 18-wheeler truck carrying refrigerated cheese overturned on U.S. Highway 11 outside Alabama’s DeKalb County, emergency services issued an official message to residents on its Facebook page: don’t eat the cheese.
The affected cheese has been declared “salvaged” and “unfit for human consumption,” so, you know, don’t put it in your mouth.
An official Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Twitter account used the accident as an opportunity to direct curious people toward the agency’s page on preparing an emergency food supply. FEMA endorsed the cheese edict.
The initial wording of “please do not consume the cheese products at this time” leaves a little room for interpretation. Perhaps a later time is fine?
