In a recent article, we discussed the problem of adulterated cheese in Kraft’s bagel bites. The problem isn’t limited to bagel bites, however. These cheese products were found in other food items as well, including tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese. Here’s a look at what the lawsuits uncovered. If you’ve bought one of these products recently, you’re probably wondering: Is it cheese?

Adulterated cheese

The FDA’s most recent inspection of the Roos Foods facility in Kenton, Delaware, revealed sanitary conditions that facilitated the growth of bacteria like Listeria innocua and non-pathogenic E. coli. In addition, cleaning operations did not adequately protect the food from contamination. These factors are critical in an adulterated cheese lawsuit. Unfortunately, the state attorney general did not pursue the case, as it lacked the resources to investigate and prosecute the case.

The defendants, in this case, were convicted of fraud in the manufacturing of misbranded cheese and selling them to consumers. Castle Cheese Company, Universal Cheese & Drying, Inc., and International Packing LLC admitted to introducing misbranded cheese products into the market. The company’s executive pleaded guilty to aiding the introduction of adulterated cheese products into interstate commerce. They face fines of up to $500,000, and possibly even jail time.

Adulterated tomato sauce

In a recent lawsuit, a Wisconsin woman filed suit against a company that produces Bagel Bites Pizza Snacks. Kaitlyn Huber claims that her pizza snack is adulterated because of deceptive labeling. The can’s label features the “REAL Seal” that indicates real dairy in the product, and a large type that promotes the ingredients. Consumers in Wisconsin value the soft, moist texture and tangy flavor of real mozzarella cheese.

Adulterated mozzarella cheese

Nason filed a lawsuit in New York seeking compensation for tainted mozzarella sticks. The sticks contained starch instead of mozzarella and violated federal standards of identity for cheese. The lawsuit sought damages, injunctive relief, and restitution for consumers. In addition to damages, Nason is seeking court costs and attorney fees. This case is likely to be resolved through settlement. However, the lawsuit will not only be beneficial for consumers who suffered damages from tainted mozzarella sticks but will be of great benefit to the legal profession and various industries.

A recent civil complaint filed by the US Department of Justice alleges that the S. Serra Cheese Company has misbranded its Italian cheeses and has inadequate procedures to ensure their quality and safety. The FDA was notified of the lawsuit, and the company has agreed to pay damages to the consumer. The case is ongoing, and the settlement will depend on the merits of the claims. Adulterated mozzarella cheese lawsuits are often filed when consumers are unable to determine whether a product is safe or not.

Adulterated tomato sauce in Kraft’s bagel bites

A lawsuit claiming that Kraft Bagel Bites are falsely labeled as having “real tomato sauce” has been dismissed by a U.S. district judge. The plaintiff claimed that Kraft Heinz bagel bites did not contain real tomato sauce, but were in fact a mixture of cheese and tomato sauce. According to the FDA Compliance Policy Guide, there is no set standard of identity for tomato sauce.

A Wisconsin woman has filed a class action suit against Kraft Heinz Foods over the company’s Bagel Bites, alleging that the frozen discs do not contain real cheese or tomato sauce. Kaitlyn Huber is spearheading the lawsuit against the food company, alleging that Kraft Heinz deceives consumers by claiming that its products contain real cheese and tomato sauce. Kraft Heinz says it uses high-quality ingredients and will defend its products.
