Fake honey? Really?
- Nov 10th 2011
Wow. That’s what comes to mind after reading the article I’ve got for you today. Did you know that about a third of our honey is tainted with illegal antibiotics and lead and that it’s smuggled in from China? Frankly, I’m horrified.
Tom Philpott has written a great article for Mother Jones dot com all about this fiasco, I’m going to let his article do the talking.
Make sure you buy honey from a reputable source like a farmer’s market or local apiary. Honey is expensive, if you see it for sale at your supermarket at a super-low price I’d avoid it like the plague, it could wind up making you really sick.
