Despite rules and regulations put in place for food manufacturers, sometimes products do fall through the cracks. One of the most major recent incidents included a massive string of recalls related to J.M. Smucker Co.'s peanut butter products, with an initial announcement dating back to May 20. The company identified potential Salmonella contamination in certain products, which also affected fresh fruit snack cups sold at grocery chains nationwide, as well as fudge products sold at Walmart.
Earlier this month, the FDA announced that fresh organic strawberries sold under the brands FreshKampo and HEB were not safe for consumption after regulatory agencies linked the strawberries to a recent hepatitis A outbreak. According to the recall notice, the strawberries were sold at major retailers, including Walmart, Kroger, and Aldi, among others.
While no illnesses have been reported in connection to the recalled tea tonic, the FDA recommends contacting your doctor or your local health department if you drank it. Hepatitis A is contagious and can cause liver disease, and your healthcare provider can help determine if vaccination will be necessary.
This is an interesting lawsuit because to be fair the bottle does clearly say it does not contain preservatives and the citric acid, though also listed on the label is in fact a preservative, however it also seems reasonable to expect consumers to be aware that black tea requires a preservative to be bottled. if they removed the citric acid, the bottled tea would mold and become dangerous to drink. Those who wish to avoid chemicals usually brew their own at home, and even then you are probably consuming chemicals as almost all teas labeled organic or natural contain pesticide, colorants, and flavorings. Tea is not a product you can ever guarantee quality of unless you know for certain how it is grown, and packaged. Perhaps this suit will shine a bit of attention to this industry, as many who want to be healthy and seek the benefit of tea, all very much want just the natural tea, and it seems very difficult to acquire a truly pure product.
