Casu marzu, a maggot-infested Sardinian delicacy proclaimed by Guinness World Record as the world’s “most dangerous cheese,” can rack up to $60,000 in fines for those caught selling it. The sheeps’ milk cheese is registered as a traditional product of Sardinia and therefore is locally protected. Still, it has been deemed illegal by the Italian government since 1962 due to laws that prohibit the consumption of food infected by parasites. While some say it’s an aphrodisiac, others say it could be dangerous for human health as it can create myiasis, which are micro-perforations in the intestine.
