Spices are valued for their distinct flavour, aroma and colour but they are exposed to wide range of microbial contamination. After spices are harvested from plants, they’re often laid on the ground to dry, salmonella comes from birds and other animals, so the contamination is getting into the spices somewhere in picking, drying, processing or storage.
