    The FDA says that 12% of imported spices are contaminated with salmonella and other contaminants.

    The FDA says they’ve found salmonella in almost 7% of all imported spices.  More than 80 types of salmonella were found along with some unsavory additives.  And it just keeps getting better and better. How about a little rat hair with your paprika?  They also found that 12% of all imported spices into America were contaminated with either salmonella, animal waste, insects or rodent hair.  They say the contamination likely happens during storage rather than harvesting.
