(WSVN) - There could soon be an olive oil shortage.

This shortage may be due to the fast spread of an olive tree-killing bacteria in Italy.

One estimate states the bacteria has affected about 50% of all olive oil manufactured in Italy in the last five years.

The current supply chain issue, labor shortages, and the war in Ukraine are also affecting the supply.
