In response to concerns over food safety, many in the spice industry are taking measures to provide you with the information you seek. While testing has always been conducted, certificates of analysis (COAs) are now accompanying most products through the supply chain. COAs identify country of origin, certifications, best by dates, and information on product testing.
As of August 2022, Smith & Truslow spice jar labels have “best by” dates (as opposed to “packaged on” dates), and include lot numbers that correspond to the COA for the enclosed spice or herb. If you would like to review the COA for the lot we are currently selling, or for one that you have already purchased, please send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to indicate 1) the spice name, and 2) the lot number, and we’ll respond with a PDF of the COA, as is available.
