The FDA has taken action against at least 3 manufactures of turmeric spice where the spices have been found contaminated. Finally, the FDA are looking after our wellbeing.
The manufacturers whose turmeric is being recalled are
- Gel Spice.
- JM Exotic Foods
- Gel Spice
These manufacturers have issued a voluntary recall of their turmeric spices due to the large and high amounts of harmful toxins discovered in them.
Many people use turmeric for healing. It is an excellent spice with numerous health benefits. But not when there is a harmful metal inside.
The toxic metal can cause bone disorders, heart and brain damage and is incredibly unhealthy. It is notoriously common in powders and products that have been grown in soil rich in lead, mainly in India. These powders are then shipped to America.
As per the FDA
“Lead can accumulate in the body over time. Too much can cause health problems, including delayed mental and physical development and learning deficiencies. Pregnant women, infants, and young children especially should avoid exposure to lead. People concerned about blood lead levels should contact their physician or health clinic to ask about testing.”
Check the turmeric that you are putting into your body. Make sure it is good for you.
