Organic black peppercorn recall, yikes http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm...
Frontier Natural / Whole Foods 365 / Simply Organic and a few other brands apparently come from the same place. The products in question date as far back as August 2013, up to March 2014
Ok - that's probably in my peppermill right now and has been for a while. Thanks for the heads up, but I'll just use up what I have since I haven't had any ill effects and I only cook for myself these days.
That same company supplies the bulk products for most of the co-ops in the Twin Cities, too.
I remember the recent outbreak of food poisoning in the UK attributed (by the public health authorities) to uncooked curry leaves: http://www.theguardian.com/world/2013...
So the risks are real but as the FDA study indicates its a relatively small risk. Thus I suppose always sensible to choose spices carefully and if nothing else visually inspect them before using - I often find small stones and little twigs.
I see that it tells you who supplies the peppercorns. I want to know where they get it from. Does anyone know.?
