Dear Customer,

Following a series of incidents in which cumin and paprika was contaminated with almond powder, the FSA launched an inquiry in order to determine the source and the size of the problem. Although it is still not clear whether the contamination was deliberate or accidental, extra caution is advised for products containing cumin that don’t declare nuts on their labelling. Similar incidents involving peanuts have occurred in the US which resulted in numerous product recalls.

Exova’s Food Chemistry Laboratories can conduct specific tests for almonds and peanuts as well as other allergens, and can offer a routine service starting from a 5 working day turnaround.

Faster turnaround times are available with prior agreement with the laboratory.

With increasing market demands to identify allergens in food products, our UKAS accredited allergen testing provides a reliable solution to ensure your products are safe for consumption.

For more information contact us at to register your interest, or call us on +44 0330 222 0321.

Further details can be obtained by following this link to the FSA website.

Many Thanks
