  1. I wonder how this can happen….salmonella is not the sort of thing that usually gets into herb products. Are these being processed in some sort of food processing facility that also processes all sorts of other things?

    I do think that it’s good that Teavana and the other companies involved have acted openly and proactively to prevent anything bad from happening. This behavior is to be commended.

    1. I’m not really sure there are details on the contamination. Perhaps it was cross contamination from the equipment or the herbs were contaminated in the field? Yes, it was nice to see them take quick action on the matter.
