Perhaps I should have been anxious about spices before these recalls.
Perhaps I should have purchased whole spices and ground them myself.
Perhaps I never should have used cumin or chile or tumeric or curry --
Oh wait, I didn't.
But even so, these recalls are scary, and although I never like to cross something completely off my list-- I am crossing off cumin. And other ground spices.
And, I may even stop using dried herbs and spices in general-- salt and pepper aside.
Years ago my mom told me " when in doubt, don't". Think it's good advice now in light of these recalls.
