There are varieties of cheese made exclusively with raw milk, and during their manufacture they are not subjected to any thermal or physical process to eliminate bacteria.
In this case, the microorganisms present in the milk remain unaltered and are passed on to the cheese, which requires exhaustive controls on hygiene and the production process.
