Stung by fake honey

By Simon Round, September 17, 2009

In the run-up to Rosh Hashanah, Israeli Ministry of Agriculture officials are warning consumers to beware fake honey. Consumers have been, er, stung, by a brand of honey, manufactured in central Israel, which was found in tests to have been nowhere near a bee.

The works — a hive of criminal activity — was also found not to meet minimum sanitary standards.

Hopefully the charges will stick.
