EVOO Producers Are Misleading the Consumer

“'Made in Italy' label also misleading on Bertolli, Carapelli, Filippo Berio brands, lawsuits allege”

Salov North America Corp., maker of Filippo Berio olive oil, and Deoleo USA, which makes Bertolli and Carapelli, are mislabeling and misleading consumers. Here are few quick points revealing the issues:

· Their products lead you to believe they are either made in Italy or with 100% Italian olives

· They claim to be 100% extra virgin olive oil, which is the highest quality olive oil

· These brands are not meeting state or federal standards for the term “extra virgin”

· The product is being adulterated with other refined oils, making them less than 100% olive oil

· Oil is being packaged in clear plastic bottles, allowing the product to degrade, losing the health benefits you seek in olive oil!
