Something smells rotten to Feds at Williamsburg cheese factory

An interesting example of how resiliant bacteria can be; a strain of Listeria has taken root at a Williamsburg cheese factory. In 2004 inspectors collected a test sample of bacteria that turns out ot be the same strain as that just collected. Basically, despite disinfection attempts, a strain established itself for over five years.
