February 2016: A false advertising class-action lawsuit was filed against Carrington Tea Co. for allegedly deceptively marketing Carrington Farms Extra Virgin Coconut Oil and Coconut Cooking Oil. The complaint alleges that the company markets the products as healthy, as well as a healthy alternative to butter and other oils when, in reality, such claims are not true because the products contain a high level of saturated fat and increase the risk of heart disease. (Boulton v. Carrington Tea Co. LLC, Case No. BC609360, Superior Court of the State of California – County of Los Angeles)
