Honey impounded
Cyprus has impounded 20,300 kgs of honey imported from India because it could contain antibiotic residues. The importer, Efstathios Stylianou Ltd, claims it was to be used as feed for honeybees and was not destined for human consumption. If that's the case, it seems to entail an horrendous risk of spreading disease amongst Cyprus bees (feeding bees other bees' honey risks spreading diseases like EFB and AFB). In any event, I wonder if this is Indian or Chinese honey.

Sam's Wholesail Club sells a really cheap "U.S. Grade" honey. Can't remember the brand name right now. On the lable is listed about twenty different countries. I'll try to get all those names the next time I'm there.

Al-
I think he means chemicals - not antibodies, but antibiotics - like some sort of medication given to the bees.
