Dear Customers, Friends, et al,
The embargo on our cheese still remains. Two FDA officials came again to Morningland yesterday (Thursday) and closed their investigation, but informed us, at the same time, of their plans to open a new investigation next week. One FDA official informed us that, despite the ongoing embargo of our cheese, that the FDA had been given permission to remove cheese for testing purposes on Thursday. When we explained that we had made the decision to have all of (at least) our present cheese tested before shipping, and that, due to the embargo, we could not do testing yet and therefore we have no cheese to sell at present, the FDA agent threatened to note our reply as a refusal and said that forceful action might then be taken. After phone calls were exchanged between the agent and her superiors, the agent informed us that testing of our cheese would be done at a later date.
No cheese producing, no cheese sales, because we are still on hold...
Thank you for your continued prayers, patience, and support.
Joseph, Denise, Jedadiah, Morningland employees and families
