KOLLER V. DEOLEO USA, INC.

CASE NO.: 3:14-CV-02400-RS

UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA

You are affected by this class action settlement if you purchased in the United States any the following products:

* Bertolli Extra Virgin Olive Oil, between May 23, 2010 and April 16, 2018

* Bertolli Classico Olive Oil, between May 23, 2010 and December 30, 2015

* Bertolli Extra Light Olive Oil, between May 23, 2010 and December 30, 2015

The lawsuit contends that certain “Bertolli” brand olive oil products (the “Products”) were inappropriately marketed as “Imported from Italy” and/or “Extra Virgin.” It seeks a court order to preclude that marketing and to provide payments to purchasers. Deoleo denies any wrongdoing. It contends that the Products have always been truthfully marketed and labeled.

To settle the case, Deoleo will pay $7,000,000.00 into a settlement fund. Each member of the class who submits a valid claim form will receive a cash payment from the fund for each Product purchased during the applicable time period. Your total recovery will depend on the number of Products you purchased, and the number of Products purchased by other class members who submit a claim. You can make a claim for up to five products purchased by your household, unless you submit Proof of Purchase, in which case there is no limit. Any leftover funds after payment of attorneys’ fees, payments to the class representatives, class notice and administration expenses, and payment of valid claims will go to charitable organizations.
