The Sainsbury supermarket chain is pulling bottles of Italian Extra Virgin Olive Oil off its shelves after it was revealed it contained oil from Greek and Spanish olives.

Although blended in Italy, and made up mostly of Italian olives, the store accepted that the label gave the wrong impression about its contents. The BBC programme Weekend Watchdog said the error showed up during a taste test with a chef for the show which was transmitted last night.

Sainsbury said: "We can assure customers that a full and thorough review has been undertaken of all products within the olive oil range and no other products are affected."
