Possible Salmonella Contamination Leads To CVS Pharmacy Tea Recall

CVS Pharmacy Tea Recall

CVS Pharmacy recalled select cases of Gold Emblem Abound Organic Spiced Herbal Tea following notification from the manufacturer that the product is potentially contaminated with Salmonella.

CVS Pharmacy became aware of this potential contamination when an ingredient produced by the manufacturer’s raw material supplier tested positive for Salmonella in another company’s product. Since CVS Pharmacy’s Gold Emblem product also contains this ingredient, there stands a risk that their product is contaminated as well.

Approximately 200 units of the recalled product were sold prior to this recall.
