Statement from the National Honey Board

“The National Honey Board is always upset to hear reports of adulteration in honey. Honey is one of nature’s most natural products, made by bees, and with no additives or preservatives of any kind. Consumers have every right to expect that they are getting pure honey, which is why reducing the incidence of adulteration in honey is a top priority for the honey industry. The National Honey Board continues to work with the industry to preserve the purity of our product and to educate regulators and law enforcement agencies about this issue. The vast majority of United States beekeepers, honey importers, and honey packers are all working together to eradicate bad actors from our industry.”
