They also did a report on curry paste  in the North,same results,

named the manufacturers and posted pictures of the products,

which is the correct thing to do,but does not often happen,for

fear of been sued.

Sorbic Acid and Potassium Sorbate kill microorganisms, or prevent or retard their growth and reproduction, and thus protect cosmetics and personal care products from spoilage.
