Does olive Oil look like lard when refrigerated? Or am I being deceived?

I recently purchased a jar of sundried tomatoes in "100% Olove Oil", as the label states. Ingredients are listed as : Sundried tomatoes, 100% pure olive oil, garlic, herbs, spices, & sulfur dioxide (for color retention).

After opening it, I stuck in the refrigerator. The next day I notced that the oilve oil had turned into a solid white hard mass. It looked like lard. I've emailed Costco, where I purchased it to inquire if it really is olive oil in the jar, or if it contains something else. I have other things in my ref. in olive oil. The oil will thicken when ref'd. , but remains clear and will still flow.

My question is; Could this reallly be olive oil, or is it more likely something else?
