Has the offending text been removed, or is it still there?
If it's still there, then I would suggest a polite but firm email pointing out the error and asking them to remove it. You may be able to negotiate an amendement/correction/apology, but it would probably be best if all reference to the accusations just disappeared. You could try emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
as a first point of contact.
If you don't get a response, or they refuse to correct their statement, then you may possibly be able to take further action although libel action in the courts (which would be your "legal recourse") is a last resort. It's costly, and you've no guarantee of a result. I wouldn't even consider it.
If you do decide to get solicitors involved, make sure that they don't make unsupportable threats and make sure that you have the resources to follow it through. Silly blustering solicitors letters
are not likely to get you far!
PS From what you have said it sounds unlikely that you personally would have any grounds for action, as it would be the individuals who have allegedly been libelled . . .
