He brought the issue to a representative of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), who sent him a letter.
According to a letter from USDA spokesman Mark K. Smith, the agency is aware of the incident and is investigating the situation.
Smith wrote that, while the investigation is ongoing, the FSIS has asked that the farm continue to sell turkish cheeses.
Smith also said that the FSis “has asked that we do everything we can to ensure the safety of the product, including through labeling.”
But the farmer’s concerns weren’t limited to dairy products.
The FSA told the farmer that turkish products are not approved for use in turkish-style cheeses because they have a higher sugar content.
The FSIS is also investigating the possibility that the farmer sold turkish meat.
The USDA’s announcement comes as some states are tightening restrictions on where turkish cheddar and other cheeses can be sold.
In Iowa, it was reported that the state’s Department of Food and Agriculture (DFA) is requiring cheese manufacturers to label their products with the word “turkish” or a similar statement, and will be issuing a notice to all dairy producers that have products containing turkish.
In Ohio, the state is requiring dairy products to have the word ‘turkish’ or similar statements.
Ohio’s Food and Drug Administration has also asked for the word to be included in the labeling.
In New York, the FSA says that the word must be printed on the label of all cheese products that contain turkish in a font that is clearly visible from a distance.
A spokesperson for the Ohio Department of Health told the Associated Press that the department is taking the issue seriously.
But the spokesperson added that it is up to the state to decide how to label and what kind of information it wishes to include on the labels of products that have turkish on them.
The FSIS did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The FDA’s Smith said that it “is taking this matter seriously, but that the consumer should remain vigilant.”
Smith said in the letter that the agency was notifying all cheese producers of the need for labeling.
