If you put honey into any container, it must be either boiled first, steamed, or at LEAST washed in your dishwasher w/ nothing else in it. Honey does not spoil at all, UN LESS, there is some bacteria that somehow got in it. That is why jarring honey can be complicated. People i know who make honey, wash the jars in hot water first then they boil the jars to make sure there is no bacteria left in there. Then once the honey is in the jars, some people boil it again to ensure that there is no bacteria in the jar. BUT, i like my honey raw. So, i know not everyone boils the honey after it has been jarred. So yeah, there most likely was bacteria in the container.
