Deoleo USA issued a vol­un­tary recall with­draw­ing some of its Bertolli and Cara­pelli Extra Light Tast­ing and Bertolli Clas­sico Pure Olive Oil because the prod­ucts may have pre­ma­turely spoiled, accord­ing to notices sent to sev­eral major retail­ers.

Our inves­ti­ga­tion to date reveals that the oil has pre­ma­turely oxi­dized, caus­ing poten­tial off odor and taste, which presents a qual­ity but not a health issue,” the com­pany said. We have iden­ti­fied the source of the prob­lem with one of our refin­ing sup­pli­ers and have taken imme­di­ate cor­rec­tive action.”

Last week, in response to an Ital­ian inves­ti­ga­tion into alle­ga­tions of fraud, the pro­ducer of Bertolli said, said its prod­ucts and processes meet the high­est qual­ity stan­dards” and that the com­pany strictly respects all the laws and reg­u­la­tions relat­ing to food secu­rity in all the coun­tries in which it oper­ates.”

The com­pany noted the recall was ini­ti­ated as a pre­cau­tion­ary mea­sure.” The with­drawn prod­ucts were dis­trib­uted in the United States from Jan­u­ary, 2015 through May, 2015.

The recalled prod­ucts are:
