Lawsuit filed in Wisconsin claims that Bagel Bites aren't made with 'real' cheese
The lawsuit against Kraft Heinz was recently filed in the cheese-loving state of Wisconsin.
: “Bagel Bites, the perfect bite-sized pizza snack, are made with delicious, high-quality ingredients that our fans know and love. We proudly stand by the food we make, and are focused on bringing great products to market. The lawsuit lacks any merit, and we will strongly defend our brand.”
Wisconsin resident Kaitlyn Huber is listed as the plaintiff and the lawsuit is seeking class-action status for any resident of Wisconsin, Arkansas and Ohio who purchased Bagel Bites"during the applicable statutes of limitations."

He said he is hopeful that his new case will highlight the importance of the dairy industry to the state of Wisconsin. headtopics.com
