I have a traditional clover mead in secondary which appears to have carbonated by itself. Why would this have happened?

17.5 lbs honey sp. gravity 1.125
clover honey
5 gallons spring water
2 packets dry yeast d47
2 tsp yeast nutrient

10/10/2014 1.022

great taste but too sweet. carbonated?
I have done this same recipe before without this happening and the fg on previous batch was .994 which makes me think this batch did not finish

Did you test pH? Did the temp drop below 60 F?
