More Brands May Be Misleading Consumers with “100% Grated Parmesan Cheese” Label
On April 25, 2016, Keller Rohrback L.L.P. filed a class action lawsuit against Kraft Heinz Foods Company alleging that Kraft misled consumers by marketing parmesan cheese products that contain wood-pulp content as “100% Grated Parmesan Cheese.”
Since that time, allegations have been raised about similar practices on the part of other cheese producers including: Safeway Inc., Aldi Inc., Save-A-Lot Ltd., and AHOLD USA Inc. Specifically, it has been alleged that the following brands of “100” parmesan cheese actually contain substantial amounts of cellulose wood pulp:
- Safeway Inc.’s Safeway Signature Kitchen brand “100% Grated Parmesan Cheese,” sold at Safeway, Pavilions, and Vons locations across the country;
- Aldi Inc.’s Reggano brand “100% Grated Parmesan Cheese,” sold at Aldi stores;
- Save-A-Lot Ltd.’s Mantia’s Italiano brand “100% Grated Parmesan Cheese,” sold at Save-A-Lot’s retail stores; and
- AHOLD USA Inc.’s brand “100% Grated Parmesan Cheese” sold at Giant Landover, Giant Carlisle, Stop & Shop New England, Stop & Shop New York Metro, and Peapod.
Keller Rohrback L.L.P., a national leader in representing consumers in class action lawsuits, is now investigating potential claims against Safeway Inc., Aldi Inc., Save-A-Lot Ltd., and AHOLD USA Inc. to hold them responsible for any misleading or false labeling of cheese products that contain substantial wood-pulp content instead of “100% cheese,” as advertised.
