Consumers are being instructed to return the tea for a full refund. 

Traditional Medicinals CEO Blair Kellison said, in a letter to consumers, that no illnesses have been reported.

The tea recall comes on the heels of a massive egg recall over salmonella contamination concerns, as well as a recall of lettuce over E.Coli contamination.
