I think that consumers will be pleased to know that levels of extraneous matter in that 'savory blend of natural spices' will conform to ASTA CLEANLINESS SPECIFICATIONS.
Extraneous matter includes, but is not restricted to: stones, dirt, wire, string, stems, sticks, nontoxic foreign seeds, excreta, manure and animal contamination.
What might these specifications look like for, say, allspice? Why, I'm glad you asked.
They stipulate that:
In six test samples, the number of whole dead insects will not exceed two. The level of mammalian excreta will not exceed 5mg/lb. The level of non-mammalian excreta will also not exceed 5mg/lb. Similarly, the percentages of mold, dead insect parts by weight, and other extraneous foreign matter will be capped at 2.00, 1.00, and 0.50 respectively.
