Tea Recalled Due to Salmonella Risk

On March 11, 2016 Awareness Corp. issued a recall of its 7.4 ounce container of Boost Tea because it may be contaminated with Salmonella.

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. Salmonella infection can produce fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis. 

Recalled Boost Tea is packaged in a white plastic container and was distributed nationwide. It can be identified by the following:

  • Lot #: 022615
  • Expiration Date: 10/17

Consumers who have purchased this tea can return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.
