What’s This Settlement About
The lawsuit alleges that SNA (Salov North America Corp.) improperly marketed the Products as “Imported From Italy.” The lawsuit alleges that – as disclosed on the back label – most of the olive oil in the Products originates from olives grown in other countries, then shipped to Italy for blending and bottling before being exported to the United States.
Filippo Berio is a widely available brand of olive oil, found in tons of supermarkets nationwide, so lots of people should be eligible.
The Settlement Class includes all persons in the United States who purchased Filippo Berio Olive Oil between May 23, 2010 and June 30, 2015 that was labeled as “Imported from Italy.”
What Products Are Included?
The settlement is limited to the following products: Filippo Berio Robusto Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Filippo Berio Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Filippo Berio Delicato Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Filippo Berio Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Filippo Berio Olive Oil, or Filippo Berio Light Tasting Olive Oil.
