America Has a Record-Setting Stockpile of Cheese
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture has found that America's cheese stockpile is the largest its been in 100 years.
1.385 billion pounds of cheese are currently in cold storage, that's the highest amount since the USDA started keeping track in 1917. Apparently the East North Central region (Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, and Wisconsin) has the most cheese with 339 million pounds of American cheese and 374 million pounds of other cheese.
The surplus is caused from there being too much milk on hand for processors and its easier to store milk when it's turned into cheese.
The lowest our stockpile reached was in 1918 when America only had 23 million pounds of cheese.
