Checks by the National Compliance Regulatory Authority (NRCA) have revealed that Jamaican curry powder being recalled by the Department of Health in Connecticut in the US is not being sold locally.

The curry powder is produced by Oriental Packing Company.
A statement from the NRCA says there is also no indication that Oriental Packing is a local manufacturer or distributor.
Based on information received about the recall in August last year, the NCRA did random sampling of  curry powder from local producers.
The samples were tested by the Bureau of  Standards Jamaica (BSJ) against the Jamaican Standard Specification for Spices and Sauces which includes testing for lead and other heavy metals.
The tests results were within specification and no anomalies existed.
According to the statement, the NCRA, BSJ, Consumers Affairs Commission and the Ministry of  Health will continue to collaborate on the investigation.
The Connecticut recall, issued last month, was reportedly triggered by the presence of  lead in three of  Oriental Packing’s products.
