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.

The plaintiff holds The JM Smucker Co. and Does 1-10 responsible because the defendants allegedly engaged in false advertising.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant, restitution, interest, costs of suit and further relief as the court deems just. She is represented by Scott J. Ferrell of Pacific Trial Attorneys APC in Newport Beach, California.
