    Just a little extra information:

    Bee Propolis is a material that is used in health foods, skin creams and natural anti-inflammatory, and anti-viral, anti protozoan medications. It comes from Poplar trees and cone bearing tree and is a byproduct of the honey business as the bees carry it back to the hive along with flower nectar.

    Fluvalinate is an insecticide that is used to fumigate empty beehives to rid them of insects and mites. Fluvalinate belongs to a group of broad spectrum insecticides that are categorized as pyrethroids.

    Although some of this might have been sold as bulk material to health food stores for distribution to customers, most probably went to manufacturers. The recall is for about 2 tons of this material, that's a huge volume, and we may see specific product recalls in the future if levels of fluvalinate are discovered in products manufactured using these lot numbers.
