Tejava Iced Tea Recalled for Glass Fragments


NEW YORK (MainStreet) —Tejava is recalling several lots of its Premium Iced Tea in 12-oz. bottles because the products may contain glass fragments that could be harmful if swallowed, the Food and Drug Administration said Friday.

The recall is precautionary as no illnesses or injuries have been reported in relation to the affected product.

The affected product’s specific lot codes, which can be found on the back of the bottle label and on the long panel of the case tray, include 1BT220, 1BT221, 1BT222, 1BT223, 1BT253, 1BT254, 1BT255, 1BT277, 1BT278, 1BT279, 1BT280 and 1BT313.

The 1-liter size of Tejava Premium Iced Tea is not affected by the recall.

The FDA says consumers should return 12-oz. bottles of the iced tea to the store where it was purchased so that coupons, product replacement or a credit can be issued. Those with additional questions can contact Tejava at 1-888-847-8742 or visit the company’s website www.Tejava.com.

Tejava is the third company in recent months to recall items with fragments inside of them. In November Craisins were recalled for possibly containing small hair-like metal fragments, and in October Kraft (Stock Quote: KFT) recalled Velveeta Shells & Cheese microwaveable cups due to concerns that there may be small, thin wire bristle pieces inside of them.
