Where is My Honey From?
Sorry to the grammar geeks for ending the title with a preposition. "From where is my honey," did not seem to work.
The US Department of Agriculture is announcing a new rule requiring that honey bearing a USDA grade label or other USDA certification mark also be marked with its country of origin. Failure to properly mark the honey can result in debarment from USDA services relating to inspection and certification.
Apparently, the USDA believes most honey is already properly marked. However, the regulatory change was mandated by Congress.
