Making a Stink: Cheese Gases Causing Chaos

It goes great on a burger and even makes a nice little snack on its own.  But across northern Europe, cheese is responsible for a lot of chaos.

FOX News Radio’s Chris Hoenig has the story:

Audio clip:

A gas cloud leaking from a French cheese factory floating to British shores, and reeking of rotten eggs.  The smelly situation has led to five times the average number of calls to the London Fire Brigade.

This woman says the smell has given her a headache, though authorities say it poses no danger.  The soccer team in the factory’s home town of Rouen forced to cancel a high-profile match – they don’t stink, but their stadium sure does.

Meanwhile in Norway, a truckload of goat’s milk cheese catching fire in a traffic tunnel.  The gases from that keeping firefighters at bay for four days and forcing the two-mile tunnel to be closed for several weeks.
