Publix Super Markets Inc. has recently been accused of selling grated cheese with unlisted fillers and marketing the product at a premium. The face of the class action suit, Erin Rudder, claims Publix breached its implied warranty of their product and violated their duty of good faith and fair dealings to their customers.
Publix advertises that their grated cheese uses 100 percent real Parmesan or Romano cheeses; however, Rudder allegedly found cellulose, a common filler found in foods, in the cheese. Similar complaints against Publix regarding the grated cheese claims the supermarket has been using its fillers to reduce production costs and then using deceptive advertising to demand a price higher than market value for its product.
