okay, time to get out some soupers and raise  my own.
also start checking out your pine nuts.  there are some that are coming from china that are inedible. they can lead to a syndrome called pine nut mouth.  metal taste in the mouth for weeks to months. have had few pts with this now.

Another US agency not protecting the public and doing its job.  Ban the honey.  Buy local and only US honey.

seems like from the article it has been banned. and the large honey packagers are breaking the law to save a few bucks, big suprise. before you can expect a monitoring agency to be able to catch this stuff at a rate that discourages those who are profiting you have to fund said agency suficiently.
