You’ve heard of counterfeit money, counterfeit jewelry, and counterfeit medicine, but this might be a new one.                          

A shocking amount of counterfeit food made its way to dinner tables this year, according to a national database created to track this growing trend. Michigan State University’s John Spink, who is in charge of that database as Associate Director of the Anti-Counterfeiting and Product Protection Program, said that up to seven percent of the U.S. food supply is affected by food fraud.

He’s found that some of the likely suspects are olive oil, milk, honey, and fruit juice, all of which are frequently diluted with water or cheaper products like vegetable oil or corn syrup.
