Did you know that the wedge of aged cheddar you’ve got in your fridge is a “high risk” food? According to the Center for Retail Research in Britain, cheese is the world’s most stolen food item. More than meat, more than baby formula.

Cheese stealing is especially popular in Europe because as one security expert put it: “You know, Europeans love their cheese.”

Guess so.
