Deoleo To Pay $7 Million to Settle Bertolli Olive Oil Mislabeling Suit

Deoleo, Inc., the seller of Bertolli olive oil products, has agreed to pay $7 million and to change its labeling to settle a putative class action alleging that the company marketed and sold the products as being "Imported from Italy" although most of the oil came from countries other than Italy, and that the oil degraded to the point that it did not meet the "extra virgin" standard through the "best by" date on bottles.
