Yes, Virginia, your Honey Bear may be an imposter!  And he’s likely chock full of contaminants like toxic antibiotics banned from human consumption and other chemicals that few people can even spell.

Honey laundering has been a burgeoning billion dollar business and who knows more than most on the subject?  Michael Kliks, President of the Hawaii Beekeepers Association, an advocate for the honey and organic honey bee industry in Hawaii, “;The most common and dangerous contaminant is chloramphenicol and it has been detected in Chinese honey for almost 10 years.
