CVS Teas Recalled Over Salmonella Risk

Posted on April 26, 2016 9:48 am under Product Liability

Certain Gold Emblem Abound Organic Spiced Herbal Teas, sold at CVS stores nationwide, have been recalled. The teas included in the recall have a sell by date of March, 2018 and could potentially be contaminated with salmonella. CVS has removed the recalled products from their stores’ inventory, but it is possible that some affected products have already been sold.

Salmonella kills about 450 people each year, and makes roughly a million people sick. The bacteria causes nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea, and is often accompanied by fever. The bacteria can even enter the blood stream, though this is uncommon. The elderly and people with weak immune systems are especially at risk of death from salmonella contamination.
