IS HONEY GIANT “COMVITA” TELLING THE TRUTH?

By Carol Sawyer

On September 21, 2018, Benita Martin sent a question to Comvita:

“Please advise what tests for 1080 are undertaken on your honey? I’m worried about the bees that were found on the 1080 poisoned cows and your hives are closest to the location.”

*****************************************************************

A Comvita representative responded :

“Comvita uses Analytica Laboratories to undertake Sodium monofluoroacetate (1080) testing. Analytica are an IANZ accredited laboratory who perform a wide variety of bee product testing on behalf of the Apiculture industry.

Comvita undertook 1080 testing on a range of honey samples which were taken from honey harvested between September 2017 – March 2018 including honey from 1080 drop zones. No traces of 1080 were detected in any samples which is inline with all scientific literature which suggests the risk of contamination to bees and their products appeared to be negligible.

‘Low risk’ is a category we assign to this residue in our testing schedule, and best reflects where no verified evidence of cross contamination is known to occur. This is consistent with research we have seen elsewhere which indicated 1080 is not attractive to bees and poses no threat.”

******************************************************************

However the Executive Director of Analytica Laboratories said on 20 June, 2018, in an email to beekeeper Roy Arbon :

“… we are not able to test your honey for 1080 unfortunately, because we don’t have a testing method for doing so…”

******************************************************************

What happened between March 2018 and June 2018? Did Analytica lose their testing equipment?! Is Comvita telling the truth?
