Default Celigene Mozzarella Cheese - is it supposed to taste sour?

I was in my neighborhood Trader Joe's store this
afternoon and picked up a refrigerated plastic
container of "Marinated Celigene Mozzarella
Cheese" packed in oil with herbs.

I expected mild, pleasant, slightly crumbly
mozzarella cheese balls, but I found them sharp,
sour, and unpleasant in taste. Is this normal for
a "Celigene Mozzarella" and my palate needs more
education, or does this cheese have a problem?

Thanks for any education you might provide.

I have posted a 456 kilobyte photo of the
container label at URL

It was mishandled, probably subjected to heat somewhere
in its life. Mozz should be very clean, fresh and nice; no
trace of sourness. Either take it back to TJ or tell them
the next time you are there; they should give you a fresh
package to make up for it and if possible pull the old batch.
