The Republic of Tea Issues Voluntary Recall of Organic Turmeric Ginger Green Tea

April 29, 2016 from the FDA
The Republic of Tea is dedicated to the health and wellness of each and every citizen (customer). As such, we are issuing a voluntary recall of our Organic Turmeric Ginger Green Tea in response to a possible health risk.
The Republic of Tea was notified by one of our suppliers, of the possibility that one lot of its organic ginger ingredient may be contaminated with Salmonella bacteria.
The organic ginger supplier reported this finding from another customer. The Republic of Tea and the organic ginger supplier have conducted their own investigations and have tested numerous samples of organic ginger by accredited independent third party laboratories and confirmed the absence of Salmonella.
Despite the fact it was confirmed that there is no Salmonella in the organic ginger that was tested, The Republic of Tea is taking the precautionary measure to recall the following Organic Turmeric Ginger Green Tea:
