The aim of the focus action was to check honey throughout Austria for authenticity and origin as part of the European Commission's OPSON X project. 20 samples from all over Austria were examined. Eight samples were rejected (in part several times):
- two samples were judged to be adulterated
- two samples were judged to be misleading
- two samples did not comply with the Honey Ordinance (composition)
- five samples were objected to according to the Food Information Regulation.
