TeaSource of Roseville, MN is recalling Roasted Chestnut loose leaf tea, because it may contain undeclared almonds. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to almonds run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.

Roasted Chestnut was distributed in the Twin Cities region through our three retail stores; and elsewhere in the U.S. through web and mail order, or through our wholesale partners.

This item can be identified by its packaging; packed in metal foil pouch (either silver or black), with a TeaSource label identifying it as β€œRoasted Chestnut” in one of four sizes: 1lb, 4oz, 2oz, or sample. No illnesses have been reported to date.

The recall was initiated after it was discovered that this product containing almonds was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of almonds. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a temporary mistake in the company's production and packaging processes.

Consumers who have purchased any size of Roasted Chestnut loose leaf tea on or after June 18, 2018 are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact TeaSource at 1-877 768-7233.
