I know you've already accepted an answer, but this piece of information is missing: cheese, kept unwrapped (or uncontained inside something) in a refrigerator, easily picks up bacteria from other foods, particularly meats, raw or cooked, and from the fridge itself. Which is why it should be, preferably, loosely wrapped in cheese paper, baking parchment or greaseproof paper as a minimum safety standard.
UPDATE: No idea how to make these links, but what I'm saying can be backed up here: www.britishcheese.com/facts/faqs-31, North Dakoto University: www.ag.ndsu.edu/pubs/yf/foods/fn.572.pdf (go to page 14), www.wikihow.com>...> Food Preparation> Food Selection and Storage. I could go on, but really, I can't think why I should, it ain't difficult to find this info. Course, if you want to store cheese badly, don't matter to me, I ain't eating it anyway.
