Feds charge 5 with illegally importing China honey
CHICAGO — Federal prosecutors in Chicago say two companies and five individuals are charged with illegally importing honey.
Authorities claim the honey was mislabeled to indicate it was from other countries to avoid paying antidumping duties, or it contained antibiotics not allowed in honey sold in the U.S. They say the scheme cost the government more than $180 million.
Honey Holding Solutions of Baytown, Texas, has agreed to a $1 million fine for allegedly buying Polish honey that contained a banned antibiotic. Groeb Farms of Onsted, Mich., agreed to pay $2 million for allegedly buying Chinese honey that it knew was imported illegally to avoid duties.
