SAN FRANCISCO (Legal Newsline) – A California woman alleges that a cooking spray is not extra virgin olive oil as advertised.
Shelly Robinson filed a complaint individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated on Aug. 2 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against The J.M. Smucker Co. and Does 1-10 alleging violation of the California Consumer Legal Remedies Act.
According to the complaint, the defendant manufactures Crisco 100 Percent Extra Virgin Olive Oil No-Stick Spray. She alleges clinical testing conducted by a leading laboratory "conclusively establishes" that the product is not extra virgin olive oil.
