    Unless the label says differently and they are totally lying in their ad…..

    Here is photo of a label on a 5 lb bottle of honey sold at Costco. I saw this today.


    "Product of U.S.A." Really?

    Why not? Why so skeptical?

    Well, much of this thread is a discussion of non U.S. honey being sold...

    It sure seems like there is an underlying assumption by many in this thread that Costco is doing something underhanded. What exactly are they doing wrong and where is the evidence?

    Its that burned motor oil honey that says mixed source and includes any Asian country, especially India, Indonesia, or Vietnam that you have to look out for. That's pretty much guaranteed Chinese

    That was my wife's favorite honey until she tasted some raw wild honey from one of my colonies

    At the risk of repeating myself….
    Do a search for Costco Kirkland Signature Honey and you will find:
    Pure 100% US Honey

    Which part of this is causing confusion?

    I am not sure what the color has to do with anything. I just pulled honey from a hive that had not been touched for a couple of years and on wildflowers. It is burned motor oil in color great in taste and from southern Missouri. Unless the burned motor oil was speaking of something other then color and texture.

    Product of the us means that the product was packaged in the us. The back label should say where the boney actually come from.. that is part of the true source spec.
    I'm skeptical because they do everything but say it is domestic honey in the jar.

    only farm-fresh hive-ripened, 100% pure US Grade A honey
    Us grade a is just grading...it does not mean it is produced in the us.

    I couldn't get your link to work, but I found this description here.
    http://m.costco.com/?p=aHR0cDovL3d3d...RvcG5hdj0mcz0x

    ...or search for honey if that doesnt work.

    Ad i said, they take great pains not to say it is pure honey produced in the us.

    Hold on....I do see that verbiage for the signature honey....my apologies. I would still be curious to see the actual label.

    Stay with me on this Dean.
    Costco Kirkland Signature Honey…. go ahead....copy and paste it into the search engine of your choice. Google works fine.
    You will see a Costco.com link…probably at the top of the list. Click on it.
    Read the product details.
    You will discover that it states…. Pure 100% US Honey
    This isn’t difficult

    Could that be a typo?

    Could they have omitted the "Grade A" between US and Honey?

    That would be my guess for two reasons.
    1. It reads funny the way it is...hard to imagine that is what is on the label.
    2. They didn't mention in their own article in their own publication that it was only u.s. honey.

    Dean et al. It says it right there on the Label. Product of U.S.A. I don't see why you think it came from somewhere else.

    My cousin is a trucker and often brings vegetables from Mexico from Nogales to US destinations. Some go to a processing plant in New Jersey where they end up as frozen vegetables labeled Product of USA.

    Product of USA does not necessarily mean that the stuff in the package originated in the country on label.

    That just ain't right. That should never happen. Are you sure? What brands? I want to check them out the next time I am in the grocery store.
