Olive oil producer claims victory in mislabeling and false claims lawsuits

November 28, 2018 from the Foood Dive:

"Deoleo, a Spain-based maker of olive oil products, recently announced two legal victories. One was a permanent injunction against false and misleading statements circulated on social media, and the other dismissed a mislabeling lawsuit."
"The permanent injunction was granted Nov. 15 by a Minnesota judge, who said statements published about Bertolli and Carapelli olive oils in Natural Solutions Magazine were false and misleading. The mislabeling lawsuit was decided Nov. 8 by the U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C. The judge in that case found plaintiff Kevin Fahey's claims that Bertolli Extra Virgin Olive Oil was mislabeled to lack sufficient factual content to determine Deoleo's liability."
"Both cases cited a 2010 study from the University of California-Davis, which Deleo said has "since been heavily refuted as false and misleading by olive oil councils and experts from around the world." That study found 69% of imported extra virgin olive oil sa mples bought off the shelf did not meet international standards required for that label."
