On a (now legal!) rooftop apiary in Red Hook, beekeeper Cerise Mayo got confused when her bees started producing some red goo instead of natural, healthy honey. And after some lab testing, it was found that the goo was full of red dye #40, the same stuff used at nearby Dell's maraschino cherry factory. Mayo asked, "Why would they go to the cherry factory, when there’s a lot for them to forage right there on the farm?" On the other hand, why settle for natural nectar when modern technology makes corn syrups sweeter than you could ever imagine? "Slow food" is for the birds!
