A bee gathers pollen from a wildflower in the vicinity of Ancient Corinth, in the northern Peloponnese yesterday, as fallout grew from the latest health scare that involves tainted honey. Development Ministry inspectors started overseeing the removal from shops of local honey brands found to contain high levels of parabichlorobenzene – a chemical used by beekeepers to kill off a kind of moth that attacks hives during storage.
