Posted October 01, 2018 06:30:07If you’re unsure where your cooking oil was stolen, it’s worth looking into whether the oil is actually yours or not.
According to the Food and Drug Administration, if you buy a new cooking oil or other food product that has been adulterated, it can be stolen from you.
“If you buy an adulterant, the adulterants can be used to make the product stronger,” FDA spokesman Chris Sager said.
“But if you get it from a company that has a long history of theft, then it could be stolen and made stronger.”
Sager said the FDA is investigating the theft of cooking oil from grocery stores.
If the theft occurs in a store that sells food, you can call the FTC or the FTC-Office of Inspector General.
