GenX Compound found in North Carolina honey


The StarNews of Wilmington reports that honey collected in Robeson County, North Carolina tested positive for unregulated compound, GenX. The sample, collected by a Robeson County farmer, tested for levels nearly 15 times higher than the health goal set by state officials. The farm is southwest of the Chemours Company plant. The company is known for its use of GenX. North Carolina waste management officials say the farmer doesn't sell the honey. Officials are unsure if the viscosity of honey could have affected the test results, and have reached out to the Environmental Protection Agency for guidance.
