COLUMBUS (WCMH) — CVS Pharmacy is voluntarily recalling select cases of Gold Emblem Abound Organic Spiced Herbal Tea due to possible Salmonella contamination.
The US Food and Drug Administration says an ingredient produced by the manufacturer’s raw material supplier tested positive for Salmonella in another company’s product. The tea sold at CVS also contains that ingredient.
The product is labeled “Gold Emblem Abound Organic Spiced Herbal Tea 1.41 oz” and was packed in 1.4 oz cartons. It has a best by date of March 18, 2018 with a UPC code 0 50428 541043.
No other best by dates are affected.
The product was available at CVS Pharmacy stores nationwide. Any customer who purchased the recalled product should immediately discontinue use and return the item to CVS Pharmacy for a refund.
Salmonella is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Symptoms often include fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.
