100% Parmesan Cheese Contains Wood Pulp, And A Judge Says It’s Our Fault For Not Knowing

By Koh Mochizuki

Angry customers filed lawsuits over products claiming to be "100% Grated Parmesan Cheese."

A federal judge dismissed the case, saying that customers should read labels before purchasing packaged food. Cellulose, a byproduct of wood pulp, is a common ingredient listed on grated Parmesan cheese.

What other horrors might be sifted into the cheese?

Last year, Kraft Heinz, Walmart, and Target stores were slammed with 50 lawsuits that were consolidated into one multidistrict litigation overseen by U.S. District Judge Gary Feinerman in Chicago.

The plaintiffs argued that the manufacturers violated numerous state consumer protection statutes by falsely advertising the product's purity.
