Health Canada reports that one lot of “Throat Coat Lemon Echinacea” herbal tea is being voluntarily recalled.
Traditional Medicinals made the decision after a company supplier found Salmonella contamination in one of the ingredients, lemon myrtle leaf.
The recalled tea was sold at stores across Canada and online, including Amazon Canada, Bulk Barn, Loblaws, London Drugs and Walmart.
The lot number is 019, with an expiry date of February 2021.
Traditional Medicinals is advising consumers to discard products from the affected lot and to contact the company by telephone at 1-800-543-4372 for reimbursement or with any questions about this recall.
Health Canada is monitoring the company’s recall and will inform Canadians if new safety information arises, as needed.
