Parmesan Cheese Fraud

Levi & Korsinsky, LLP is investigating potential claims against manufacturers of grated parmesan cheese relating to the marketing and sale of the products as 100% Parmesan cheese. On February 16, 2016, Bloomberg news announced that independent laboratory testing revealed high levels of cellulose wood fiber in certain Parmesan cheese products advertised as containing 100% grated Parmesan cheese including the “Essential Everyday” brand of 100% Grated Parmesan Cheese which was found to include 8.8% cellulose wood fiber. Food manufacturers often include cellulose in products so that they can keep production costs low.

Essential Everyday products are available in stores nationwide including but not limited to Acme Markets, Albertsons Stores, Cub Foods, Farm Fresh Supermarkets, Jewel-Osco Stores, Shaw’s/Star Market, Shop ‘n Save Stores, and Shoppers Food & Pharmacy.

If you purchased Essential Everyday 100% Grated Parmesan Cheese, our investigation may matter to you.
