Frontier Co-op is voluntarily recalling its Organic Hojicha Tea due to potential to be contaminated with Salmonella, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.
To date, no illnesses have been associated with these products.
The recalled products were sold nationwide between the dates of December 13, 2014 – April 21, 2016. A list of affected product lots is listed below. On foil bulk packages, the four-digit lot code will follow the item number (#2920) on the front label directly above the UPC code.
