Organic Yogi Echinacea Immune Support Tea Recall


The East West Tea Company, Inc has announced the voluntary recall of nearly 900,000 bags of Organic Yogi Echinacea Immune Support Tea after pesticide residues were detected at levels unsafe for consumption.

The traces of pesticides were found as part of routine audit procedures, according to a statement from Yogi.

The company said that it doesn’t use pesticides in its farming, but they can drift onto their land if a neighboring farm is applying pesticides or chemical fertilizers.

Yogi also said that the traces of pesticides found in the Echinacea posed no risk of harm or illness, but that the product did not meet its high-quality standards.

TThe U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) was notified by Yogi and is still investigating the recall of the nearly 900,000 bags that showed toxicity above action level. The FDA established action levels for things like pesticides based on what is and isn’t avoidable around the growing of food.

The recall is considered a Class III recall, which the FDA says means that it’s “a situation in which use of or exposure to a violative product is not likely to cause adverse health consequences.”
