Product Recall: Traditional Medicinals

St. Louis, April 18, 2018 - In response to a voluntary recall, Dierbergs Markets has removed the following products from its shelves due to possible Salmonella contamination:

Traditional Medicinals EveryDay Detox Lemon Tea
UPC: 0-32917-00197-9
Lot Code: 19461

Traditional Medicinals Throat Coat Lemon Echinacea Seasonal Tea
UPC: 0-32917-00159-7
Lot Code: 19482

While neither product has tested negative for Salmonella, a supplier's ingredient used in them tested positive, so the recall was enacted as a precaution. Salmonella is 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. No illnesses have been reported to date, however.

Customers may return the affected product to any Dierbergs for a full refund. Consumers with questions or comments can call Traditional Medicinals consumer line at 800-543-4372.
