China's quality watchdog warned local inspection and quarantine organs yesterday to thoroughly investigate the olive oil imported from Italy and urged the importers to ensure the quality of the imported olive oil.

Some media have reported that four out of five bottles of Italian olive oil were adulterated with lower quality oil from other Mediterranean countries.

China's Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ) has asked the Italian embassy in China to verify and provide specific information. And AQSIQ has also urged Italia to further strengthen the management of its olive oil qualities.

Statistics show that Italian olive oil has accounted for 37.5 percent of China’s olive oil imports, making it the second largest exporter of olive oil after Spain.
