Overview
But what if this symbol of purity has become deeply corrupt? Starting with an explosive article inThe New Yorker, Tom Mueller has become the world's expert on olive oil and olive oil fraud-a story of globalization, deception, and crime in the food industry from ancient times to the present, and a powerful indictment of today's lax protections against fake and even toxic food products in the United States.
