Nonprofits File Lawsuit Against Sioux Honey Over ‘100% Pure’ and ‘Natural’ Labels on Products Contaminated with Glyphosate

Organic Consumers Association

WASHINGTON - Beyond Pesticides and the Organic Consumers Association (OCA), represented by Richman Law Group, today filed a lawsuit in Superior Court in the District of Columbia against Sioux Honey Association, for the deceptive and misleading labeling of its Sue Bee and Aunt Sue’s honey brands. The suit follows news that Sue Bee honey products labeled “100% Pure” and “Natural” tested positive for glyphosate residue. Glyphosate, a known endocrine disrupter and, according to the World Health Organization, a probable human carcinogen, is the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup® herbicide.

Especially in light of other activities in the news (sort of) involving the Standing Rock Sioux tribe in ND, I think it behooves these groups to make clear that "Sioux Honey Association" has no connection to any Native Americans, but took its name from "Sioux City," Iowa (also no particular relation). See the company's Web site.
