Ground Szechuan pepper not banned by FDA.

I was just reading the most recent FDA Aphis manual, and it appears that ground Szechuan peppercorns are not banned!

"Ground spice

Find that they are
Szechwan peppercorns

INSPECT AND
RELEASE See footnote 5

Reason: Falls outside the
scope of the
regulations

Footnote 5 Szechwan peppercorns are roasted to release aromatics prior to grinding and this roasting would mitigate the risk."
