Not permitted to bring cheese OUT of Switzerland

My husband tried to bring home a hunk of gruyere a couple of years ago and he was made to throw it away at airport security. I'm curious as to why Switzerland wouldn't allow him to leave the country with it. I can imagine why U.S. Customs might not allow it in here but never thought he wouldn't be permitted to leave with it. Any ideas?
