SCHENECTADY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – If you bought ground cinnamon from your local Price Chopper/Market 32 store recently, you might have actually picked up a bottle of cumin. International Spice, the manufacturer of PICS ground cinnamon, has recalled 16-ounce bottles of the spice with UPC 4173505270 for a packaging error. Some containers, the manufacturer said, may contain cumin instead of cinnamon.
