Tell the FDA to Go After Wood Pulp in Parmesan Cheese!

A recent Bloomberg News investigation reveals massive deception in the labeling of Big Food’s parmesan cheese products.

The report details how Big Food companies are using cellulose, an anti-clumping agent made from wood chips, in grated parmesan cheese as a cost-saving measure. The FDA says that cellulose is safe and acceptable as an additive if it’s only two to four percent of the product. Yet a whole slew of cheeses may exceed these limits by leaps and bounds, according to independent testing done by Bloomberg.

This is outright fraud. Tell the FDA to enforce its own rules and ban wood pulp from grated cheeses.
