Consumers have a reason to be wary of large supermarket honey suppliers. This past February the Department of Justice announced it was bringing charges against two large U.S. honey processors, Honey Solutions and Groeb Farms, Inc., for taking part in a widespread scam by importing honey from China in violation of United States tariff laws. It appears this is only the tip of the iceberg.
