An article caught my eye and I just had to pass it along to you guys! According to Food Safety News, the average American consumes about a pound of honey per year, thats over 400 million pounds of honey year! Now wait, that’s not even the bad part. The scary thing is that over a third of all the honey that is brought into the United States in most likely to have been smuggled from China and contain illegal antibiotics and lead!! Gasp. Of course, idiots buy these imports because they’re significantly cheaper and the FDA does a less than thorough check on imports. So please, be safe, only buy honey that says “Made in the USA”. Even better, head out to your local farmer’s market and buy some local honey! You’ll support a local business, probably get way better honey than in a supermarket and you can rest assured that there won’t be any illegal antibiotics in it!
