So, even while TTC, I have been carefully monitoring everything that goes into my mouth, just treating my body as if it were pregnant. I had one question after searching and searching the net I can't come up with a definite answer, and wonder if any of you could chime in.
I love authentic parmesan reggiano cheese from the "Fresh Market" (that has been aged for 24 months), they have those HUGE wheels of cheese sitting out and they cut off individual size chunks for people to buy by the pound. My question is, I know soft cheeses with unpasteurized milk is a 'no-no', and I know that regular parmesan cheese is on the 'safe list', but what about authentic parmesan reggiano cheese that they have sitting in the store at room temperature, is that safe to eat? I am dying for some! It says to store it in the fridge, so why is masses of this cheese sitting at room temperature in the store?
I would appreciate any input!! Thank you!
