What's really in your food? Labels could be misleading

If you think you know what's actually in the food you're buying, you could be wrong.

Reading the label may not be enough to help you know what's in it.

Experts say about 10 percent of the food in a grocery store is adulterated, meaning it's mislabeled, diluted or misrepresented.

Some of the biggest offenders?           

Fish products, fruit juices, extra virgin olive oil and honey.          

Researchers say food fraud costs the U.S. 10 to 15 billion dollars a year. And counterfeiters rake in the cash.

Experts say you should be careful if something looks too good to be true.

They recommend you shop for trusted brands.
