Indian spice brands with millions of consumers across world investigated over pesticides in mixes



www.independent.co.uk/asia/india/mdh-everest-masala-ban-i...

Indian spice exporters are being investigated after tests revealed elevated levels of cancer-causing pesticides in their products, sparking concern among global food regulators.

The Spices Board, India’s main regulator for spice exports, said it has begun conducting inspections at processing and manufacturing plants belonging to MDH and Everest, two leading brands.

The investigation comes over a month after Hong Kong suspended the sale of three spice blends produced by MDH and one by Everest, saying they contained high levels of a carcinogenic pesticide named ethylene oxide

Singapore ordered a recall of an Everest mix, while New Zealand, Australia and the United States said they are looking into complaints about the two brands.

Britain’s food watchdog has applied extra control measures to all spice imports from India, the Food Standards Agency said last Wednesday.


SIDE NOTE: Ethylene Oxide has been covered on this forum before!

Is this just another excuse for the New Normal and SADS?

On the other hand, some regulators have said that they have not found any traces Ethylene Oxide

These are branded and packed spices, majority of Indians use directly from powdering mills, unpacked. If we test these powders....... we don't know what will be the levels.

Outside of India/Pakistan etc, majority of people use boxed/branded ready made spices.

Personally, we have never used these brands (probably because they are Hindu owned and the photo of the old dude puts you off :))

We prefer to use Muslim brands, although, I would assume they too can be mixed with unknown life span preserving and packaging ingredients. And Allah knows best.

On a side note: I was feeling pity for visiting England jamaath to my city.
polluted water, polluted air, pesticide filled; spices, meat, vegetables........ flies, mosquitoes.... dirty wash rooms....Great sacrifice.

For we Indians, it is normal.

now there are no foreign jamaaths after lockdown

I used to to go in tabligh many years ago but grew out of it, good to go in your youth but best to leave it when you get older and other priorities take over.
