DEKALB COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) – The DeKalb County Emergency Management Agency posted an interesting warning to their Facebook page Saturday afternoon.

Please don’t eat cheese you find in the 18-wheeler wreckage on U.S. Highway 11.

The agency says a truck turned over on the highway on Friday night. It was carrying refrigerated cheese.

According to the DeKalb EMA, the cheese has been declared “salvaged”, and it’s not fit for humans to eat.

So please, if you “liberated” some cheese from an overturned 18-wheeler on U.S. Highway 11, don’t eat it.
