Dirty deeds in Cyprus

An update to the earlier story about the impounding of 20,300 kgs of “Indian” honey in Cyprus because it had been found to contain antibiotics:

Two batches of honey were discovered on supermarket shelves and the Public Health Autorities did a surprise inspection of the impounded honey and found over 10% of it missing. The director of the honey company, Efstathios Stylianou, had earlier maintained that he had imported the honey from India to distribute it to producers as bee feed.
