Is it safe to eat soft cheese made from unpasteurized milk?

If unpasteurized milk is used, federal regulations require the cheese be aged for at least 60 days before it is sold. The federal government recognizes the aging of cheese as equal to pasteurization for purposes of eliminating pathogenic bacteria. Nevertheless, federal agencies also recommend avoiding cheese made from unpasteurized milk.
