Is feta cheese pasteurised?

SO it's OK to eat feta as long as it's pasteurised, however, going through Sainsburys collection, about 7 different kinds, none of them actually said if they were or not.

Do I just assume they all are?

Yes - in this country if cheese isn't pasturised it needs to say so.
Feta is absolutely fine.

ive eaten it (along with dippy eggs, peanuts, unpasturised cheese and wine blush) dont take any advice from me. But I do think a little of what you fancy does you good, everything in moderation.

what about feta in Greece do you think? Although I had a chunk of Danish Blue last night so I guess I'm not too bothered, just I go on hols in September and usually eat buckets of feta!

Some books say you should avoid feta, but I had some the other day and I was fine.

Not sure about in Greece, I wouldn't think so. I was just there and I did eat it, a bit more modestly than usual but not much... I even looked at the feta in the shops there but it didn't say anything on the packaging there either. I guess a lot of the cheese there may just be madeby the local farmer inwhich case I don't think it's pasterised. However, do Greek women stop eating it??!
