The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has found residues of the weed killer glyphosate in samples of U.S. honey, according to documents obtained by the consumer advocacy group U.S. Right to Know through a Freedom of Information Act request.
Some samples showed residue levels double the legally allowed limit in the European Union.
There is no legal tolerance level for glyphosate in honey in the U.S., so any amount of detectable glyphosate in honey could technically be considered illegal. Some of the honey tested by the FDA had glyphosate residues at 107 parts per billion, well more than the 50 parts per billion set as a maximum allowed in the European Union, the documents state.

Monsanto / Bayer love it that there are no legal tolerance levels for glyphosate in the USA. They spent a fortune in lobbyists getting that gift. Have you seen this stupid man?
What absolute utter bullshit. He’s made his $$$ telling those outrageous LIES. Glyphosate is found in HUMAN mother’s milk, in urine, in our water supply! It’s everywhere. Monsantan, uh I mean Monsanto doesn’t care. They’re tasked with making profits, that’s their goal that’s what they care about. If corporations are people – they’re psychopaths. And we are all utter idiots for allowing it.
