Tea Company Recalls One Flavor Because Of Possible Salmonella Contamination

May 2, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
The Republic of Tea has voluntarily recalled one flavor in its product line because of the possibility of salmonella bacteria contamination. Though the company insisted there is no evidence of a contamination problem in its organic turmeric ginger green tea, it said a supplier of organic ginger warned of the possibility. The company said it was the first voluntary recall in 25 years. The recall was posted by the FDA. There have been no reports of illnesses related to drinking the tea. Salmonella infections can cause diarrhea, vomiting, abdominal pain and fever.
