Hugh: Woman Sues Bagel Bites for Cheese Fraud
Published on April 30th, 2021 @ 6:20 PM
Because the last twelve months haven’t been ridiculous enough; a Wisconsin woman has sued Kraft-Heinz for cheese fraud. She claims that the “fresh mozzarella” on the company’s Bagel Bites pizza is actually “a cheese blend”. She’s claiming bite-sized lies are coming from Kraft-Heinz, since Bagel Bites boxes read that the snack is made with “mozzarella cheese and tomato sauce”. Her lawsuit reads “Wisconsin consumers want real mozzarella cheese in pizza because they value (1) its soft, moist texture, (2) its milky, yet tangy taste and (3) its high protein and relatively low calories and sodium compared to other cheeses.” This lady’s attorney tried filing this class-action lawsuit in New York but instead decided to file it in Wisconsin due to the state’s ties with the dairy industry. She’s also claiming an unspecified amount of damages.
