Metallic foreign bodies (metal powder) found in spices over the permitted limits

  • - Need to tighten supervision and control over processed spice products’ safety and labelling -

As travelling overseas has become a common practice among people and they are increasingly exposed to exotic cuisines presented by media, imported spices are very popular among consumers.

The Korea Consumer Agency (President: Lee Hee Sook) tested 20 processed spice products (in powder form)* in the market for their safety. Consumers are advised to note that metallic foreign bodies (metal powder), in amounts over the permitted limits, were found in more than a half of them.

* Top-selling products on Naver Shopping: Pepper (8 products), cinnamon (7), and cumin (5).
