I can't see that there was anything 'inadvertent' about the fact that comb honey which was harvested and offered for sale at the wrong time of the year, during a time of severe drought and in an area of known risk for the contamination of honey with tutin, ended up poisoning at least 22 people. Rather, it was a miracle that more people were not poisoned, although I understand that some 20 packs of this particular batch of comb honey are yet to be located.
