Sabatino White Truffle and Black Truffle Infused Olive Oils

September 2017: A federal judge dismissed some state law and warranty claims but allowed other claims to move forward.

May 2017: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Sabatino Truffles New York for allegedly falsely labeling Sabatino White Truffle and Black Truffle Infused Olive Oils as being infused with actual white and black truffles when, according to the complaint, the oils are flavored with a chemically-derived perfume, 2,4-dithiapentane (also known as formaldehyde dimethyl mercaptal). (Plaintiffs filed an amended complaint in July 2017.) (Quiroz et al v. Sabatino Truffles New York, LLC and Sabatino North America, LLC, Case No. 17-cv-783, C. D. CA.)
