There will be much bewilderment around the hives today after an Indian government authority has found that a batch of honey labelled as Australian contains antibiotics.
Capilano Honey, based in Queensland, are stunned by the report. They do not export directly to India but some of their honey might have reached the Indian market via the middle east. The company spokesman says tests on the company's honey had never revealed any traces of antibiotics. Nor have residue tests by Australian agricultural authorities in recent years found any traces of antibiotics.
Not so in India, it would appear.
No doubt we will hear and read more about this honey war.
