Turmeric

In the summer of 2016, food inspectors at the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets making routine samplings of products found excessive levels of lead in Fresh Finds brand turmeric. Gel Spice, Inc., the company that produced the turmeric, recalled the product. Within a month, six more brands were found to be tainted and recalled. Although there were no reports of illness from the products, lead can build up in the body over time, and there is currently no means of removing it. A class action has been filed on behalf of Californians who bought the tainted turmeric, and we are investigating the possibility of a lawsuit to cover consumers elsewhere the country.
