Class Action Filed Against Olive Oil Manufacturers and Retailers for Misrepresentation and Sale of Adulterated Oils as Extra Virgin Olive Oil

A class action lawsuit has been filed in Orange County Superior Court by Callahan & Blaine against some of California's largest distributors and retailers of Extra Virgin Olive Oil for misleading and defrauding California consumers by claiming the olive oil they sell meets the high standards of the "extra virgin" classification, when in fact the product does not meet that standard and is of inferior quality often adulterated with cheaper refined oils such as hazelnut oil or lesser olive oils.
