The Guardia Civil in La Rioja has warned about the possible sale of adulterated olive oil in the area.
550 litres of oil has been found in large container labelled ‘Astispumante 1510’ and it comes after the theft of 1,750 litres of oil was reported in the area on December 18.
The oil was found in the town of Rincón de Soto and samples have been sent to Madrid for toxicology study.
Astispumante 1510 is used as a food additive but in incorrect amounts it can lead to diarrhoea.
