Just Like Honey – It’s Smuggled and Might Contain Lead

Did you know that the honey you might be eating isn’t as clean as you’d think? Yes, honey is clear and pretty, almost like an amber color at times, and that means it’s made by bees. But did you know that the US can make 48% of the honey we consume and the rest has to come from other places? The honey you eat might not be safe. Some of it is from Asia, and it’s labelled and deemed unsafe. It’s not ok to import it to some countries, but it could be in your US sold bottle. There’s no definitive word as to who has what, but it’s here. The 52% that isn’t being produced in the US, might be from China and might have lead in it. (Food Safety News – Honey Laundering)
