During cheese-making the bacteria are added to certain cheeses such as Emmental (also known as Swiss) and Leerdammer, and when warmed bubbles of carbon dioxide form in the cheese. These bubbles then become the distinctive holes (or eyes) in the finished product. This bacteria can also get you dizzy and sick for a couple of weeks or 2.
