Public Health Advisory 

Food recall on Organic Matters green tea 

The Department of Health is warning about a food recall on Organic Matters brand Organic Hojicha Green Tea due to Salmonella contamination. 

Salmonella symptoms include vomiting, nausea, fever, abdominal cramps and diarrhea. These symptoms can last a few days, but will usually get better on their own. If you develop a fever or have symptoms that last many days, please see a health care provider. Pregnant women, young children, Elders and people with weakened immune systems are particularly at risk. 

All recalled products should be thrown out or returned to where they were purchased.
