JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A federal grand jury has indicted three men for smuggling Chinese honey into the United States.
The U.S. Attorney's Office in Jacksonville announced Tuesday that the men are accused of mislabeling the honey as "rice fructose" to avoid more than $1 million in duties owed to the federal government.
The suspects are accused of mislabeling 123 containers, each containing 64 barrels of honey from China. After they passed through customs, the containers were relabeled as "amber honey" for sale to domestic purchasers. The honey was seized from 11 U.S. entry ports.
If convicted, the three men could face up to 20 years in prison.
