thanks jane - wasn't sure 'where' to stick it as it's 'in the news' but 'health' related too

I had just put Worcestershire sauce into the chili I was cooking before I saw this.Ours is Lea & Perrins which doesn't seem to be mentioned.I have to say that I was shocked at the amount of food affected-we eat hardly any ready made meals,but it is quite scarey how easily this sort of thing seems to happen.I think it was chili powder it was found in before too-I had some of that & immediately chucked it away.We get through loads of spices & I always assumed they were safe.
