Mafia copies of fine olive oil, wine and cheese have fueled an explosion of food crime in Italy. It's estimated to be a $16 billion-a-year enterprise.

Can you tell at first sip whether extra virgin has been diluted with cheap sunflower oil or canola?
Listen in as I explain the growing slipperly slope of olive oil.
