Tesco pulls honey off shelves amid purity concerns

Tesco has temporarily withdrawn pots of its own-brand honey amid concerns that it contains adulterated ingredients.

The council contacted the FSA, which confirmed it was looking into the matter, but has denied it called for Tesco to withdraw the product. The retailer said it has temporarily taken the honey off the shelves for further examination, but insists the product is "100% pure, natural and can be directly traced back to the beekeeper".
