Italians object to Chinese honey imports

Italian honey producers have hit out at the dropping of the import ban on Chinese honey:
“The very honey that has been adulterated, and that was banned all over the world, including Europe, because it contained a toxic antibiotic (chloramfenicol), and now authorised again because a Chinese exporter just auto-certified his product. A careless decision by the EU, which goes to the detriment of consumers' health, and follows commercial interests.”
