    You may inadvertently be getting more than you bargained for when you put paprika in your chicken paprikash.

    A new Food and Drug Administration report, "Pathogens and Filth in Spices," says that 12% of U.S. spice imports are contaminated with bug parts, rodent hairs and other ingredients more appropriate to a witches' brew than your mother's favorite recipe.

    The FDA study also found that 7% of spice imports the inspectors examined were contaminated with salmonella...

    I will Avoid raw food with spices. That should make it a little safe .I have found rat crap in the red beans I bought from an African store one time. Lucky I was not in a hurry to dump the thing in the pressure cooker thinking it has been pre-sorted.
