I would sentence him to five years in the worst prison we got unless he can work in a sting operation and bring down five more just like him and then do the same with them.  Oh yeah, fine him the max of course.  thats less than the honey is worth.

Exactly!!  Unless they force the packers to turn in bad shipments, we will only catch a drop from going into the bucket one in awhile.

There is no telling how much honey from china is shipped all over the world to every country and then relabeled or "processed" and then shipped into the U.S.

I am just wondering  why we didn't see this in the lame stream media.  Maybe if the U.S. citizens saw this they would think twice when they buy cheap honey in the stores.

Good point. Another reason to buy local from people you actually interact with.

The pedigree of honey
Does not concern the bee;
A clover, any time, to him
Is aristocracy.
