The following news is from the GourmetBusiness.com posted on April 30, 2013.

Three domestic honey producers – Adee Honey Farms, Bill Rhodes Honey Co. and Hackenberg Apiaries filed a class action complaint in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, following on the nearly five-year “Honeygate” investigation led by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement over alleged honey dumping from China. The lawsuit asserts claims on behalf of a nationwide class defined as all individuals and entities "with commercial beekeeping operations (300 or more hives) that produced and sold honey in the United States during the period from 2001 to the present." The complaint further alleges that “illegally imported Chinese honey is also heavily adulterated, containing inexpensive sweeteners and sometimes blended with high fructose corn syrup and other additives, despite the fact that importers, in league with [Groeb and Honey Solutions], represent that it is pure honey.” Moreover, the Adee complaint alleges that Groeb and Honey Solutions “continue to harm domestic producers of honey by dumping Chinese honey into the domestic market at below fair market prices
