What's in that Chinese honey?

(Thursday, Oct. 16, 2003 -- CropChoice news) -- From a news release:

Imagine sitting back on the veranda of your favorite resort hotel to enjoy a cup of tea and a sunset. But before you open that little packet of honey to sweeten things up, you might want to consider who produced that honey, and what they put inside of it!

This Saturday at 9AM Pacific, the Food Chain with Michael Olson hosts Gene Brandi, Chairman of the National Honey Board, for a conversation about the tide of Chinese honey flooding into the United States.

(Listen here: http://www.metrofarm.com/index.asp?cat=40088 )

Topics will include how China is able to produce so much honey for so little cost; how that honey is smuggled into the United States containing a toxic antibiotic; and what impact, if any, Chinese honey has on American honey producers.

Listeners are invited to call the program on KFRM, KGET, KGOE, KMPH, KNTK, KOMY, KSCO or TRUTH RADIO with questions and comments at 800-624-2665, or log them to the discussion page at http://www.metrofarm.com .
