PITTSBURGH (AP) A woman whose family controls several western Pennsylvania cheese-making firms will plead guilty along with two of her companies to charges that their grated cheese had too little cheese and too much wood pulp.

Michelle Myrter is scheduled to plead guilty Friday morning before a federal judge in Pittsburgh. She'll also be pleading guilty on behalf of International Packing LLC and Universal Cheese and Drying Inc.

The two Slippery Rock-based businesses were accused of mislabeling products made by family-owned Castle Cheese. Myrter is vice president of Castle and an officer in the other firms.

A defense attorney for the company declined to comment in advance of the guilty pleas.

Myrter faces up to a year in prison and a $500,000 fine.
