Case Name

Koller v. Deoleo USA Inc.,
Case No. 3:14-cv-02400-RS
District Court for the Northern District of California

Case Summary

The lawsuit alleges that that Deoleo marketed and sold its Bertolli brand of olive oil with the representation “Imported from Italy,” although most of the oil was extracted in countries other than Italy, from olives grown in those countries. The lawsuit also alleged that, with respect to the olive oil labeled “Extra Virgin,” Deoleo’s procurement, bottling, and distribution practices did not adequately ensure that the oil would meet the “extra virgin” standard through the date of retail sale or the “best by” date on the bottles. The lawsuit challenged the alleged misrepresentations on behalf of himself and consumers who bought the Products.

    Sorry that this has happened as this is the only Olive Oil I use.
    Thanks for exposing the lie.

    • Rose Conforti says:

      I have always bought and used the extra virgin and the classico

      ADMIN – Hi Rose,

      That makes you a class member. File a claim when you get a chance.

  2. Sarah says:

    This is my go to brand. I’m a passionate home cook and thought I was buying quality oils.

    ADMIN – Hi Sarah,

    Sadly that was not the case.

    • Thinker says:

      Don’t be so down-hearted! Olives are wonderful in Tunisia, Spain, Portugal. The oil could be superb. Just not from italy, so that’s a lie, yeah, but maybe you found a bargain!.

  3. john gillespie says:

    claim form not working. when filling out claim form purchase info, it is not registering on bottom purchasing info line and it is stating to add purchase info again?

    ADMIN – Hi John,

    I just tried it myself and it worked for me.

    • roxy says:

      Not saving the info for me either. I keep clicking add purchase and it just clears the form. Not sure why.

      ADMIN – Hi Roxy,

      Use Chrome and turn off the autofill.

      • Heather M Nugent says:

        Turned off auto-fill, used Chrome. The page is not working properly. Info is not stored. “Something went wrong.”

        ADMIN – Hi Heather,

        Their IT group is aware of the issue and they are working on it. Try sending out the paper form instead or wait until it is resolved.

    • Misty Stover says:

      not working for me either

      ADMIN – Hi Misty,

      Someone suggested you turn off the auto-fill.

    • MaryAnn says:

      did you happen to be using autofill, to fill in the form, that may be the problem. I used autofill and it wouldn’t work for me, as soon as I answered everything manually it went through no problem. ☺️

  4. Laura Robicheau says:

    I’v bought many bottles of this oil but I don’t have my receipts, how do I file??

    ADMIN – Hi Laura,

    There is an option to file without a receipt.

  5. Tina Wilson says:

    This is the Brand that I use always when using olive oil

  6. Crystal L Sweeney says:

    Thank you for making me aware. This had been the only Olive oil I have used for years

  7. Norine stazko says:

    Sorry to hear this it’s the only brand I use

  8. BOB ROBERTS says:

    I rubbed this oil on my body and broke out in warts similar to a venereal disease I picked up from a loose gypsy woman on the streets of Venice, so I was inclined to believe it was actually Italian. I cannot believe they lied to me. Please add my name to the list.

    ADMIN – Hi Bob,

    Being that you found this oil in Italy it is unlikely to be Bertolli. You are therefore not a member of the class. Hope you heal soon.

    • Connie Cocanougher says:

      Admin, I love your sense of humor. I read comments just to see your responses!

      ADMIN – Hi Connie,

      Thank you!! BTW are you also a loyal user of Bertolli? If you are don’t forget to file a claim. Use the paper form and if you shop at Costco they should be able to provide you with proof of purchase 🙂

  9. PATTY CABEY says:

    I tried to enter my information but it asked for proof of purchase and I do not save my receipts. This is the oil I use, have always been happy with this product.

    ADMIN – Hi Patty,

    There is an option to file without a receipt.

    • larry pike says:

      I don’t see an option like that on the claim form

      ADMIN – Hi Larry,

      Try the paper form instead.

  10. BBB says:

    Hi, the purchase registration is not working for me either. I tried it yesterday and today as well.

    ADMIN – Hi BBB,

    Try turning off the autofill feature.

  11. robin says:

    It’s not working making you add proof of purchase and I don’t have the auto fill on!

    ADMIN – Hi Robin,

    You may want to use the paper form.

  12. Francine S Mullane says:

    Add me to the list it’s the only oil I use

    ADMIN – Hi Francine,

    That is not the way this works. To file a claim you must use the link provided and submit a form

    • Waxme Beavers says:

      Francine, you are a moron. Try reading previous comments before you put your brain-dead drivel out there for everyone to see…

  13. Charles Simon says:

    Website is asking for Proof of Purchase. I do not save grocery store receipts. Information indicates that POP is not needed. Please advise.

    ADMIN – Hi Charles,

    Use the paper form instead.

  14. Sharon Stone says:

    I used Chrome and turned off the autofill. It still does not work. Fix it immediately or I will file a class action against you.

    ADMIN – Hi Sharon,

    I hope you understand that we are not the class action administrator nor are we tasked with the management of this case. We are simply a team of volunteers that compile and display settlements in a format that makes it easy for people to find settlements and file.

  15. Torrey Holman says:

    Oh wow! Bertolli is my brand! This is the first I heard of this. And I’d buy 2 bottles at a time. WOW. Is ANYTHING what it’s said to be these days??? So disappointed.

  16. Valerie Bertinelli says:

    I used Chrome and turned off the autofill. It still does not save my entry. What a bummer. Please fix it or I will file a class action lawsuit. Thanks.

    ADMIN – Hi Valerie,

    I hope you realize that we are not the administrators of this settlement. If you want to ask them directly to fix it and even threaten to bring lawsuit you can do so using the contact information we provided.

  17. Kendall s coleman says:

    OMG!!! The money I’ve spent, thinking I was purchasing a product that would help my health.

    ADMIN – Hi Kendall,

    Chances are that regardless of origin this product did help your health.

  18. Robert Martin says:

    Claim form is intermittent on one site and totally non functional on another. Seeing the other comments here it seem like someone might be concerned that the online form would produce too many claims. The requirement to file a paper claim would put some folks off. Just saying, but who knows?

  19. Cherie says:

    I love this olive oil, im so shocked by this information

  20. Angilean Palmer says:

    I use this oil for cooking, my hair, and skin. Ive used it for years and Im sure I’ve purchased over 50 bottles.Im livid as well as disappointed. Can’t trust anything nowadays, and I lived by this brand.
    I couldn’t find my proof for every purchase but Im sure my credit card has record.😡

    ADMIN – Hi Angi,

    I don’t think your credit card stores data specific to your purchases. It shows the store where you purchased something and the amount of your purchase but not the details of what you purchased.

  21. Cheryl Gibson says:

    I like this oil, and am disappointed if they didn’t tell the truth, but I’ll still buy it. I feel it’s probably not really that big a deal if it’s not from Italy, and I’m not even sure what “extra virgin” means.

    ADMIN – Hi Cheryl,

    We love this oil too but if you feel you are a member of the class by all means file your claim.

  22. Penny says:

    I rubbed this oil on my skin and every where I rubbed it in I got these big ugly warts in them areas.

    ADMIN – Hi Penny,

    This settlement has nothing to do with health issues.

  23. Betty Fulk says:

    I really like this olive oil. I use it for every thing

    • Marie Crowder says:

      I’ll use this oil for years, I always cook with Oliver oil.

      ADMIN – Hi Marie,

      I also love Oliver oil! 😉

  24. Betty Fulk says:

    I really like this olive oil. I use it for every thing.

  25. Debbie Bell says:

    I’ve been buying these bottles for years.

  26. Jollene Joyce says:

    I have purchased extra virgin and the classic olive oil over 20 years. This has been the olive oil use in my home. I feel betrayed and have lost respect for this lie which enabled the company to sell this product at higher cost to the consumers. I will have to consider trust in the future of this product in my home.

    ADMIN – Hi Jollene,

    File your claim.

  27. Sarah Reed says:

    Hello it says there is no required proof of purchase but when I go to fill this out it won’t let me submit without proof of purchase. I purchased 4 one in 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018. Please help! How do I submit without the proof of purchase?

    ADMIN – Hi Sarah,

    Use the paper form instead.

  28. Brenda Hardy says:

  29. Sandra Miller says:

    ADMIN – Hi Sandra,

    That makes you a class member.

  30. BETTY SUTTON GEORGE says:

    Add me

    ADMIN – Hi Betty,

    I can’t add you. You must file your own claim using the instructions provided.

  31. Doreen Spallino says:

    Such deception!!!!! Wont purchase anymore product from this company .

  32. Nanci says:

    I have used the oil for years. Just bought two new bottles. It’s hard to trust anything.

  33. Robin Foreman says:

    I really hated to hear that about the lite oil we always bought it.

    ADMIN – Hi Robin,

    Me too

  34. SO says:

    I can’t believe it, i use this product all the time and would only buy extra virgin. I’m glad this lie was uncovered.

  35. Peter Sittig says:

    I purchase the Extra Virgin Olive Oil

    ADMIN – Hi Peter,

    That makes you a class member. Congrats!

  36. JUDY HANNAFORD says:

    I use so much of this–why why

    ADMIN – Hi Judy,

    Because of greed.

  37. Lillian Moran says:

    my stomach was very sick

    ADMIN – Hi Lilian,

    This was related to origination not to potential health risks. Please take a moment to read the settlement.

  38. PATRICIA ROBERTS says:

    Bertolli is the only olive oil I purchase and have been purchasing it for years.

  39. Sandra says:

    This is so sad. I have used this brand for years. I just don’t understand why the lies.

  40. Wendy says:

    Seriously? Im still buying it. Not anymore. I go through 2 of these a month somce like 6 years. Great!

  41. Celeste Fasone says:

    My first choice forever ..always had it on hand for cooking and dipping. Guess I will throw it out now.

  42. Valerie Santos says:

    This has always been my go to.

  43. Lorraine C Reardon says:

    I have been purchasing this olive oil, twice a month as I cook alot of Italian food, very disappointing, n i actually recently bought olive oil in a speciality store and big difference, I guess it was made where it said it was.

  44. doug chagnon says:

    When I hear the name Bertolli, I think quality, wow was I fooled. We have purchased all three types listed however the one most used is the extra light olive oil. Well now I need to find another brand.

  45. Cees mcKenna says:

    ill I have always used this olive oil as it has a rich robust taste. I will continue to purchase it in the future.

  46. Theresa Ernst says:

    I purchase the Bertolli Extra Virgin Olive Oil once a month, Do I have to enter a separate form for each month or just total the number of bottles purchased during the claim period?

    ADMIN – Hi Theresa,

    Only one form.

  47. Jennifer says:

    Ive used this product for years as i love to bake and cook alot but im disapointed that i havent been buying authentic olive oil. Im not too happy about the company lieing to the customers about where its made. Im not a happy customer

    ADMIN – Hi Jennifer,
    I totally get your frustration.

  48. Jannet Walker says:

    Since the age of 23 I have only used Bertolli Extra Virgin Olive Oil. But I noticed within the last several years the difference in the taste and smell. It is apparent that this oil is not pure Virgin Olive Oil. We all get taken from time to time. Who knew….

    ADMIN – Hi Jannet,

    I have no idea what the differences are between the oils

  49. Gail Isaksen says:

    WOW!! This was my olive oil of choice. Thank you for letting me know.

  50. Tracy Maher says:

    Oh my, this is the only kind of olive oil I use.

  51. Aura says:

    I just fill the application form online here, but I submitted without imágenes of proof, do you think it will take or this form will be not acceptable, I have a claim number and confirmation number , what do you suggest me?

    ADMIN – Hi Aura,

    Without images or proof you will receive the allocation that is assigned to those without images or proof.

  52. linda carter says:

    I have been buying Bertolli olive oil for several years . I have used all of the above .

  53. Tonia says:

    I just switched to Bertolli Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Honestly, I couldn’t tell the difference. Still, the lack of authenticity is a shame. Oh well.

  54. Kammi Shannon says:

    Wow. I love this Olive oil.

  55. crystal moreno says:

    I buy the biggest bottle in the shelf woe

  56. Sheryl Maironis says:

    I have used all three of these products at some time or another. I may even have a small bottle at work that I am still using for salads. However, I do not have any receipts. Will I still qualify? I use olive oils daily, and although I have used several other brands, this was a favorite.

    ADMIN – Hi Sheryl,

    Yes you are a class member.

  57. denise says:

    I am filling out the claim form and it wont let me submit it without proof of purchase, which I don’t have. help!

    ADMIN – Hi Denise,

    Consider using the paper form.

  58. Debbie McMillen says:

    I started using olive oil a few years ago instead of veg oil because i thought it was healthier

    ADMIN – Hi Debbie,

    This settlement has to do with sourcing and not health benefits.

  59. Debra Olsson says:

    i think i have already filed a claim but cant find any evidence of such. i have no codes or #’s . is there a way you can see if i have or not? thank you

    ADMIN – Hi Debra,

    Reach out to the class action administrator.

  60. catherine ceniceros says:
