Answer:

Cheese may not be eaten unless there was a Jew supervising the milking and the cheese making process. Cheeses are often cured using the intestines of non kosher animals. Asides from that there may be problems with the enzymes that are used to make the cheese there it shouldn’t be eaten without proper kosher supervision.
