spiceWASHINGTON, D.C. – The Food and Drug Administration says 12% of spices imported to the U.S. are tainted. Think salmonella, rodent hairs, insects and more.

The worst culprits reportedly come from Mexico and India, where almost 25% of our collection is from. To make matters worse, the government shutdown caused action to be delayed.

In other words, if you really want to see something scary this Halloween, you can probably skip the horror flick. Check out your curry instead.
