Authorities in China have uncovered yet another case of fake edible oil that could potentially cause infertility in men, Sin Chew Daily reported.

A factory in Dongguan, Guangdong province was found to be producing the fake peanut oil from gutter oil, soybean oil, palm oil, crude cottonseed oil and essence.

Workers were said to blend palm oil of unknown origins with soybean oil and for each tonne of the fake oil, they would then pour 1kg of essence along with 500gm of crude cottonseed oil for the peanut flavour.

The report also quoted doctors as saying crude cottonseed oil was normally used in contraceptives and if consumed over a period of time would cause giddiness, shortness of breath, burning sensations and lead to low sperm count.
