Kraft Grated Cheese Lawsuit Investigation

Audet & Partners, LLP has filed a class action lawsuit related to the sale of  “100% Grated Parmesan Cheese” products.  Information has come to light suggesting that these products are not, in fact, 100% Parmesan, but rather are laced with significant amounts of non-cheese additives including an anti-clumping agent derived from wood pulp.  While a lawsuit is currently pending against Kraft, it is also believed that adulterated grated cheese has been sold by retailers including WALMART and JEWEL-OSCO.

A recent article published in Bloomberg Business described a 2012 investigation undertaken by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.  The FDA visited a cheese factory in Pennsylvania and first discovered that this manufacturer was doctoring its “100% real parmesan” with cut-rate substitutes and fillers including wood pulp.  This finding led to analysis of various other products, including Kraft 100% Grated Parmesan Cheese which revealed a significant percentage of filler.
