Morning y’all
. . . . . Didja Know?
A new report by the FDA, "Pathogens and Filth in Spices," says that 12% of U.S. spice imports
are contaminated with bug parts, rodent hairs and other ingredients

The study also found that 7% of spice imports examined by inspectors were contaminated with
salmonella. The amount of "filth" the FDA found in imported spice was twice that found in other
kinds of imported food.

If we knew what was in most of our foods we’d probably go hungry. Some things in our foods actually make you healthier and our body needs it. I just don’t know for sure what it is.

I’ve never found anything bad in a bottle of beer yet. lol
