(CBS) — A new report says there is enough surplus cheese in America to put together a cheese wheel the size of the U.S. Capitol Building.
Analysts say its because cheese exports have dropped. Exports to China are down 63 percent from last year and exports to Mexico are down 10 percent.
There is roughly one-point-four billion pounds of the dairy product sitting in cold storage warehouses.
It’s the largest surplus the nation has had since officials began keeping records a century ago.
