I like to add garlic powder to my chickens’s feed. Last week, I purchased a new container, and as i was emptying the old garlic powder to top off the new, a mummified fly fell out. So, doing what any normal person might, I checked the rest of my McCormick spices for flies. Ive been purchasing this brand for 20yrs and never saw a fly, but it was a “just in case” type of thing. I dont always cook my spices, sometimes I have a bag of McDonalds fries and I will add garlic powder to it for instant cheap garlic fries. I emailed the company and it was a heads up, this container was used to season my chicken’s feed, if someone else found it, it could have been worse, could you please check production. No biggie. Today, I got this email: ===================== Thank you for taking the time to contact us.

We exercise every care in the production and packaging of our products in order to bring you the highest quality possible. Our ingredients are cleaned and processed using state of the art methods, and we are trying to understand how this might happen.

Yes lady, I store the garlic powder open, next to my chicken coop where all the poop is and dont know where this mummified fly at the bottom of your garlic container came from. The initial email I submitted, already answered those questions. So perhaps they dont care and they cant read? Lol. McCormick cares that there are dead flies in your human grade garlic powder. ~ BeachFlock Life and adventures of 1 roo and his 4 ladies.
