The next time you consider eating Chinese street food you might think twice.
The use of gutter oil it turns out is pretty common. This refers to a process of pulling waste oil from sewers, grease traps, waste from slaughterhouses, reprocessing it and then selling it as cooking oil.

it seems a percentage of the oil is carcinogenic. What they pull out of the sewers probably contains engine oil as well as food oil. Industrial rapeseed oil can have horrific effects on the body and 1000's of people have died ingesting it in the past. You just don't know what you are getting when you are pulling it out the gutter and sewers.
