Capatriti Olive Oil Labeling - We Need Your Help
Zimmerman Reed is investigating claims from consumers who were deceived into thinking they were buying 100% pure olive oil when it was anything but pure. Instead, it was nothing more than residue or byproduct from olive pits and skins, produced using high heat and chemical solvents. A recent court ruling confirmed that the olive oil label was misleading and has required a distributor of the Capatriti brand of olive oil to stop labeling its Capatriti oil as "100% Pure Olive Oil."
Why go to all this trouble? Producing olive oil using these methods costs a fraction of the price than producing the real thing. Consumers might think they are buying the real deal for a reasonable price, but they aren’t buying the real thing - they’re buying something else entirely.
Numerous laws are in place to ensure that food companies make truthful and accurate claims on the products that they put on the shelves. Despite these laws, certain companies will skirt their responsibilities to turn a profit. If they do this, consumers can stand up and take action to make sure the food they are buying has labels that are ultimately consistent with what’s inside.
