Sweet Leaf Tea Company Recall

The Sweet Leaf Tea Company has issued a recall of 1.5 million bottled of ice tea after it was discovered that glass fragments may have entered the company’s drinks.

The voluntary recall involves six flavors of teas in 16-ounce glass bottles that were distributed between February 27 and December 6, 2015.

Flavors include: raspberry, half and half lemonade tea, original, green tea with citrus, peach and mint and honey.

“This was the result of glass breakage during the filling process. Consumers could potentially be cut or injured if ingested,” the company said in a release.

Sweet Leaf, which is owned by Nestlé Waters, said it has received four complaints of glass being found in the product. No injuries have been reported.

If you have purchased bottles from the recall you can call 1-877-832-5323 to request a replacement or return it to the store for a refund.
