Something serious is happening with MDH and Everest spices. They might be causing cancer, and it's important for everyone to know about it to stay safe.

Hong Kong Ban: In Hong Kong, experts found a harmful pesticide called ethylene oxide in some MDH and Everest spice products. These include MDH's Madras Curry Powder, Sambhar Masala Mixed Masala Powder, and Curry Powder Mixed Masala Powder. Everest's Fish Curry Masala is also banned because of this.

Singapore Recall: Singapore also took action. They told the importer of Everest Fish Curry Masala to take it off the shelves. Even though ethylene oxide can be used to clean spices, it's not allowed in food. This is because it can make people sick if they eat it.

Ethylene Oxide and Cancer: This pesticide, ethylene oxide, is known to cause cancer, especially after being around it for a long time. Eating a bit of it once might not hurt you right away, but it could cause problems later on.

Conclusion: Both Hong Kong and Singapore are worried about MDH and Everest spices making people sick. If you have any of these banned spices, it's best not to use them. And if you already ate them, it's a good idea to talk to a doctor. Stay safe and take care of yourself! 🌿🌶️🚫🌡️
