I have a very cold cabinet in my kitchen and my olive oil does that every winter. No worries--it is fine.

I'm more likely to think it is the oil solidifying (sp?) or it has a water/liquid component that is separating out coated by olive oil.

What happens when it is warmed to 75 degrees F?

Different oils solidify at different temperatures. I have coconut oil in the basement, some of it solidfies as 72 degrees F, some solidifies at 90 degrees F. When an oil solidfies depends on how it is processed. A hydrogenated oil (think shortening) is liquid processed into a solid at regular room temperatures.

Let us know what you decide.
That's exactly what my coconut oil looks like when it solidifies....but put the bottle in some lukewarm water and 10 min later it looks totally normal again. I would try that with this bottle and if nothing changes then I'd take it back. If you're worried about damaging the label by putting it in water (in case you have to take it back) then put it in a plastic bag and then put the bag in the pot of water. Water doesn't need to be especially hot.

I have a sister too. Mine's more like the girl in the Trop50 commericial.
'Ladies, you don't say GOODER, There's no such word as GOODER'
'But, Jane, you look GOODER'
'Do I?'


This is not thread drift. It's all related to olive oil in some way, I just haven't figured out how it is related.

My sister is like that, too...especially after she makes a meal with olive oil.
