Imported Spices Have Double Salmonella Risk
CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- The Food and Drug Administration says almost 7 percent of imported spices over a three-year period were contaminated with salmonella.
In a new report, the agency says testing of imported spices between 2007 and 2010 showed they were twice as likely as other inspected foods to be contaminated.
Inspectors found things like insects, waste, and hair on some of the shipments they checked. The FDA says there have been 14 known outbreaks globally since 1973 linked to spices.
