B&M, Inc. of Mount Vernon, Missouri is voluntarily recalling Archer Farms Ground Turmeric sold at Target stores in glass bottles with a net weight of 2.6 oz. (74g), due to elevated levels of lead. Lead can accumulate in the body over time. Too much can cause health problems, including delayed mental and physical development and learning deficienciesound in product.
