Hint: Pseudomonas is a bacterial contaminant that comes from the town water supply. It causes green, yellow, brown, pink spots on the surface of the cheese, it produces bitter putrid, rancid, pungent flavours on the cheese, it inhibits mould growth, as well as natural surface flora. It grows well at refrigeration temperatures. Florescent colours can be seen under UV light but they take several days to appear. Remedies by making sure that any washing of cheese is from boiled then cooled water, prevent handing cheese with hands still wet from the tap water. Geotrichum develops on the surface quickly and can limit the development of pseudomonas.
