See Honey from the People's Republic of China: Preliminary Results and Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 72 FR 102 (January 3, 2007) (Preliminary Results). This review covers five exporters or producer/exporters: (1) Anhui Honghui Foodstuff (Group) Co., Ltd. (Anhui Honghui); (2) Chengdu Waiyuan Bee Products Co., Ltd. (Chengdu); (3) Jiangsu Kanghong Natural Healthfoods Co., Ltd. (Jiangsu); (4) Kunshan Xin'an Trade Co., Ltd. (Kunshan Xin'an); and (5) Wuhan Shino-Food Trade Co., Ltd. (Shino-Food).
