Abstract

The concentration of lead in 59 samples of New Zealand honey taken from several enterprises in three localities in the North Island, and from different stages in processing, was analysed. No samples had lead concentrations higher than the legal limit of 2 µgg-1. No difference in lead concentration was found between honeys of the three districts (one of which was a zone of active mineralisation) but lead concentrations were found to be higher in all samples which had been stored in contact with lead solder.
