Sabatino White Truffle and Black Truffle Infused Olive Oils

In 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). (Quiroz et al v. Sabatino Truffles New York, LLC and Sabatino North America, LLC, Case No. 17-cv-783, C. D. CA.)
