We just received our new copy of food regulations here in MA and ALL ingredients must be listed on product labels---why isn't this done on honey labels?

Thanks for the feedback, Mike; I appreciate the comments I've received on this both on list and off--It's interesting too, because, you'd think a true honey-lover would be able to tell the difference. Consumers really do have to stay alert.
I only buy raw honey from the health-food store, and even there, the level of organics differ from brand to brand (I prefer YS Bee Farms)-
Happy to 'bee' here ;)
