Reason #7,894 to buy your food locally and grow your own

QUOTE: A third or more of all the honey consumed in the U.S. is likely to have been smuggled in from China and may be tainted with illegal antibiotics and heavy metals. A Food Safety News investigation has documented that millions of pounds of honey banned as unsafe in dozens of countries are being imported and sold here in record quantities.

"Honey-smuggling"?  You've got to be kidding, right? 
Unfortunately, according to this article there is a lot to be concerned about.  And if this is happening with honey what other foods might it be happening with?
Yet another reason to get as much of your food as possible from Farmers Markets and your own backyard.
