Yes, I've seen those warnings, too. I don't use EVOO, though. I always buy the regular olive oil which is okay to cook with.
It angers me to see the "100% real olive oil" and those supposedly authentic seals on the containers, too. I've seen some small containers now with incredibly high prices for olive oil... but since they've come out since this scare with the diluted oil, is it a marketing ploy because they expect us to buy it thinking it's real, or is it truly real? I don't know whether to trust our growers here in the US, or to trust the importers. Both have been implicated.
Basically, at this point, I'm using my own rendered bacon and coconut oil. But who knows how long it will be before some greedy marketer finds a way to screw that up, too.
