Re: Counterfeit honey
You see, that cheap Chinese honey was too sweet to pass up, hundreds of thousands of barrels of Chinese honey got by u-s customs because it was labeled as syrup. One scheme lasted from 2009 to 2012 before it was discovered. Adee has been called upon by both congress and prosecutors to testify about the damage the honey dumping is doing to the U.S. Market. This latest case he puts at 350 million dollars.
“I never heard of a bank heist of 350 million dollars, and kinda get away with a slap on the hand. They deserve to be accountable for what they did”, said Adee.
Just like varroa these Chinese exporters ,smugglers,crooks, won't disappear...one needs to be vigilant..thank you AHPA and Mr Adee
