Is that really Extra Virgin Olive Oil or a fraud?

Extra Virgin Olive Oil fraud is a big business in the U.S. and there are no laws on the books to prevent it.

Several studies suggest the reason is that super markets are full of adulterated Extra Virgin Olive Oils mixed with not oils and those fraudulent oils are making people with nut allergies sick.

Experts say pay attention to the taste of the oil. It should have a flavor and if it doesn't it is probably afraid. Also, if there is a waxy residue in your mouth or if it taste like stale nuts that is an indication that it is a fraud. Look for a harvest date, the oils shouldn't be older than 6 months.
