Nonprofit releases

Grocery shoppers beware! Is what you think you're buying actually what you're getting?

The U.S. Pharmacopeial Convention is a nonprofit that sets standards used by the FDA and it just released a "fraudulent food" database.

Some of the products on it might surprise you.

The database has pages of search results for milk, saying some milk products can be contaminated with machine oil, formaldehyde, and pork lard.

They say other food fraud items to watch out for are orange juice, honey, fish, and olive oil.

You can check out the fraudulent food database by visiting the U.S. Pharmacopeial Convention's website: http://bit.ly/1jNxlq5.
