The following news is from True Source Honey on November 25, 2014.

"The True Source Honey Certification Program, whose mission it is to protect consumers, retailers and manufacturers from illegally sourced honey, has issued an alert concerning honey labeled as coming from Turkey." Poor quality honey has been trans-shipped to other countries and labeled as if they come from that country to avoid anti-dumping duties. Currently honey from Turkey is being sold at below market prices which is similar to what has been done in the past with other trans-shipped Chinese honey. The volume of Turkish honey imported into the US has increased 10-fold in three years.
US companies can be procecuted if it has been shown that they knowingly purchased illegaliy imported honey. In the past Chinese honey has been presented as having originated in Indonesia, Malaysia, Mongolia, Thailand and Vietnam, instead of China.
