Place of Origin

Maker Westco Foods Co.

Maker Details The can has a Kroger Foods Foundation seal of approval. Kroger Food Foundation began in 1930, making it the first grocery company to test food scientifically in order to monitor the quality of products. That means this cannister is post 1930. Also copy right date by Brand says 1931. So that means it is atleast from 1931, if not older.

Summary Fair

Assessor Hannah Lartz

Notes The can is dirty, very smudged all the way around. The top is very rusty, and corroded. On the bottom the rim is rusty, and the metal is tarnished in spots. The lid does not come off, something/probably turmeric still inside.
