Canada extends recall to more honey brands

The recall of certain brands of honey in Canada has just been extended by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. Seven brands were listed yesterday in addition to the three earlier brands. The recalled brands include some Argentinian, Argentinian-Australian blends, Argentinian-Canadian blends and a Turkish product.

The brands may contain nitrofurans, antimicrobial drugs which are banned for use in Canada in
food producing animals. Consumption of foods contaminated with nitrofurans may pose a human health risk and have the potential to cause allergies. There have been no reported illnesses associated with the consumption of the brands.

UPDATE: A comment on Bee_L suggests that the Canadians may have only recently been able to test for Nitrofan.
