'Food fraud' a growing problem in grocery stores

And all of those regulations are doing NOTHING to stop it.  Not working very well, eh?
The top fraudster foods: olive oil. Even the extra-virgin kind is the most adulterated food, usually cut by hazelnut oil, which could pose a dangerous threat to those with nut-allergies.

Even milk can contain added sugar and salt, and skim powder - none of it listed on the label.

Tea bags are sometimes being filled with lawn grass. More expensive white tuna is switched for cheaper escolar.
Most of these items are old news. A while back I switched to California extra virgin oil since it's been found to be the real thing. Months ago I switched to local honey and honey listed as unfiltered.

Could this be the underbelly of inflation?
