At A Glance

This Alert Affects
Anyone who bought grated cheese advertised as being 100% Parmesan.
What Brands?
Market Pantry 100% Grated Parmesan Cheese, Always Save Grated Parmesan Cheese, Best Choice 100% Grated Parmesan Cheese, Essential Everyday 100% Grated Parmesan Cheese and Great Value 100% Grated Parmesan Cheese. These products were sold at Target, Wal-Mart, Jewel-Osco and other major grocery chains.
Why Was This Alert Posted?
Reports surfaced that certain Parmesan brands contain more fillers – including wood pulp – than actual parmesan cheese.
Where Did These Reports Come From?
Both an FDA investigation and independent testing run by Bloomberg News found that many well-known brands do not contain the 100% parmesan cheese as advertised.
What Else Do I Need to Know?
You do not still need to have the cheese in your possession to have a claim. If the cheese is still in your home, however, do not eat it and do not throw it out.
