FDA's "import Refusal" site was down for months, literally. The site is back: http://www.accessdata.fda.gov/scripts/importrefusals
You can search for products or countries. Under products dairy come in two categories. One for "milk butter, dried milk product" and another for "cheese and cheese products."
The U.S. has spent $375,101,508,758 in Afghanistan on the "war" effort. The above illustrates the possibility some of America's money might have been spent on dairy manufacturing. Probably they felt the need to export the product because no one in Afghanistan would eat it.
The Government Accountability Office (GAO) has produced repeated reports of imported food safety. A recent report: http://www.gao.gov/products/GAO-09-873
Not a single GAO report has had high praise for this global food supply situation.
