Spices Recalled Due To Lead Contamination
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
The Florida company, Oriental Packing Co., Inc., has issued a voluntary
recall of approximately 377,000 pounds of seasoning due to a lead contamination.
The following blend of seasoning curry products included in the recall
are Blue Mountain Brand, Grace Brand, Jamaica Choice Brand, Ocho Rios
Brand, and Oriental Brand. These seasonings were distributed in New York
and Florida as well as internet sales nationwide. To date, there has been
no illness report.
The voluntary recall came after a routine sampling performed by the New
York State Health Department who discovered lead in the product. Oriental
Packing Co., Inc. has discontinued the manufacturing and the distribution
of the recalled spices. The FDA is conducting an investigation as to how
the seasonings became contaminated with lead.
All consumers are instructed to return the product to the place of purchase
for a full refund. Customers can also dispose of the unused product by
following state and county regulations due to the lead contamination.
Lead is a serious contamination and can accumulate in the body over time
causing serious and even permanent adverse health problems. More detailed
