Honey: Buy Local – Danger from China

Tainted Chinese honey pours into U.S.

A third or more of all the honey consumed in the U.S. is likely to have been smuggled in from China and may be tainted with illegal antibiotics and heavy metals.  A Food Safety News investigation has documented that Milns of pounds of honey banned as unsafe in dozens of countries are being imported and sold here in record quantities.  And the flow of Chinese honey continues despite assurances from the
Food and Drug Administration and other federal officials that the hundreds of millions of pounds reaching store shelves were authentic and safe following the widespread arrests and convictions of major smugglers over the last two years.

Moral of the story – buy local or better yet, make your own.
