Grace Foods recalls curry products due to lead contamination

Sports August 17, 2016

KINGSTON, Jamaica – GraceKennedy Limited has announced the recall of batches of its curry products that were packaged in the United States and distributed within the US, Bermuda and the Bahamas. GraceKennedy said Wednesday that the recall has been initiated due to the presence of lead in some variants of curry products which former supplier Miami-based Oriental Packing Company, Inc produced for GraceKennedy Foods (USA) and other companies.

The following batches of curry products are being recalled:

Product Net Weight Best Before Date & Batch Number Grace Mild Jamaican Style Curry Powder in glass container – 2 oz; Best Before Date and Batch Number: BB 03/11/19 OPCLOT # 030716 and

Lead can accumulate in the body over time, and may cause serious and sometimes permanent adverse health consequences. To date, no illnesses have been reported in connection with the products being recalled, GraceKennedy said in a news release.

Consumers who may have purchased the Grace curry products bearing the above best before dates and corresponding batch numbers, should not consume them, GraceKennedy advised. Instead consumers should return same to point of purchase, where the full cost will be refunded.

The best before dates and batch numbers can be found on the top of the product caps.

“GraceKennedy wishes to assure consumers that their safety is paramount and that providing safe, high quality products to our consumers remains our number one priority,” Ryan Mack, president and CEO of GraceKennedy Foods (USA), stated.

He added that the recall did not include any other batches of Grace Curry products.
