I usually get my spices from the bulk bins at our Whole Foods. I bought some paprika the other day and when I got home I noticed a may contain/processed on shared equipment notice on the package. (They have put some of the bulk spices in their own little containers to save shelf space.) Guess I wasn't looking for a warning where none had been before, and was chatting with a lady there near the spices when I grabbed it. Back it goes. Glad to have a label where it is warranted, sad that it is necesary.

I am so totally bummed that this source is unsafe. I see some people have good results with Penzey's (sp wrong I'm sure)and McCormick. I just hate to pay either shipping or the price of a little tin from the regular grocery store! Oh well, no one every said having kids would be cheap.

Good luck spicing up your life safely, everyone.
