Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have a question for the Spice World customer service team? The answer may have been recently added to this page in one of our Frequently Asked Questions. And, of course we always invite you to complete the form below and send us your specific question.

As America’s top supplier of fresh garlic to supermarkets across the country, we recognize there are currently consumer concerns about the safety of imported products and food stuffs.

Our team is closely monitoring updates from the CDC, Johns Hopkins Medical, and the Food and Drug Administration, which has determined: “There is no evidence that food or food packaging have been associated with transmission of COVID-19 virus, including food and drugs for humans, pets, and there have not been any cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. associated with imported goods.”

COVID-19 virus is a respiratory virus and is easily transmitted between humans in close proximity to each other. Therefore, Spice World has taken all available precautionary steps within our facilities to educate our workforce and partners on the best handling practices, and hand sanitation. Spice World has added additional hand wash stations and conducted staff training to educate and limit the potential transmission or contamination from COVID-19 within our facilities.

We are aware of allergies and sensitivities to the following ingredients:

  • Wheat
  • Milk & Milk Products
  • Peanuts
  • Tree Nuts
  • Egg
  • Soy
  • Shell Fish
  • Fish
  • Monosodium Glutamate or MSG
  • Sulfites over 10 ppm
  • Gluten containing grains (including barley, rye, oats, spelt, triticale, and kamut)

We will always declare these ingredients on our label in the ingredients. If no ingredient statement appears on the product label, then the product is as it appears in the product name (e.g. fresh garlic bulb(s)). All our retail extracts are formulated without gluten. This labeling policy adheres to the Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act (FALCPA).

Our Spice World facilities have allergen, sanitation, and hygiene programs in place. Our employees follow good manufacturing practices and are trained in the importance of correct labeling and the necessity of performing thorough equipment clean-up and change over procedures to minimize cross-contact of ingredients.

We encourage you to read the ingredient statement on your package at the time of purchase to ensure accurate, up to date information.
