Cowgirl Creamery Cheese

We bought some CCC Red Hawke cheese at Glen Ellen Market as we were passing through town. We purchased it on January 31 and the pull date was February 21. It was wrapped in Saran and when we opened it had a distinct ammonia smell and then taste. Since we could not return it to the market, we tossed it. I have since written CCC about this sine the market charge the equivalent of $30 a pound for the cheese and the piece we purchased was $10.00. CCC did reply and said that we should have left the cheese open to "breathe". Since we have had this cheese before, we knew that this piece was not good. CCC never said so, but it seemed as if they were blaming the market and us for not returning the cheese. So I left it there as it seemed as if we were not going to offered our money back or any restitution.
