The California-based company The Republic of Tea is recalling one of its green tea blends as a precaution over fears of possible salmonella contamination.
The company said Monday that the voluntary recall of its Organic Turmeric Ginger Green Tea comes after a supplier said one lot of its organic ginger ingredients could be contaminated.
Tests conducted by The Republic of Tea found no salmonella. No illnesses have been reported.
