Thank's for the post. I didn't know that the united states imported that much honey.

Its a shame on our part that we can't stop ALL of this by DEMANDING inspections and high tariffs for ALL imported foods.  Its not like we're using it to build cars - ITS OUR FOOD for gosh sakes!!

Another reason not to buy anything that is not made or grown in the U.S.A.

All the more reason that knowing where you food comes from is increasingly more important to our health and safety.  The movement for growing and eating locally grown food needs to be larger.  Thanks for the article it was very eye opening.

probably wouldn't work to well.  countries would retaliate by slapping high terrifs on our exports.

truth is, most  people don't think about where food comes from.  they think it magically appears in safeway!  as long as it doesn't cost to much, they are happy. 
They are so divorced from their own interests that even when their own security and that of their children is finally compromised, they do not seek to avert the danger themselves but cross their arms and wait for the nation as a whole to come to their aid. Yet as utterly as they sacrifice their own free will, they are no fonder of obedience than anyone else. They submit, it is true, to the whims of a clerk, but no sooner is force removed than they are glad to defy the law as a defeated enemy. Thus one finds them ever wavering between servitude and license.

agreed.

High tariffs seemed/may have caused/contributed to this event. These companies wanted to increase prifits by cheating because the tariffs were in their opinions excessive.
I ponder if the high tariffs were the result of health conscerns or political conscerns,.

Thats why you should know your honey producer personnaly. I will be sending this link to my customers i think. they should know, yet another reason, to buy from me or you!
