    It is possible to get food poisoning from semi-soft white brined cheeses like Halloumi. Traditionally Halloumi is made from unpasteurized sheep and goat milk which can leave it susceptible to listeria contamination. Even when pasteurized and cooked, Halloumi food poisoning can occur if mishandled.

    “Home made rice with fried Halloumi Cheese purchased from the supermarket and chose it mainly because it was lower salt than other brands. Within 2 hours of eating I began vomiting and diarrhoea for two hours. Still feeling under par 48 hours later. Will not be eating this again!! Ever 🤢 Home made... See Morerecipe using supermarket bought Halloumi. Two hours after eating I began to feel nauseous, then was vomiting and had diarrhoea for two hours and still feeling unwell after 48 hours with headaches, fatigue and sensitive tummy. Luckily my OH has a stomach less sensitive and was not ill. I noted that it had a long shelf life on it into 2021 so did not expect to be ill like this. A health conscious relative used to recommend eating this as a healthy alternative, don't know what to, so I must find out if she still eats it or has ever been very ill like me after doing so.
