Popular herbal tea recalled over chemical contamination fears

Tea drinkers are on alert across the country, with a popular brand of herbal tea getting recalled.

Nerada Organics Lemon & Ginger Herbal Infusion Tea is being recalled from stores around the country over fears it may contain ethylene oxide.

That chemical can potentially cause illness or injury if consumed, triggering irritation of the skin, eyes, and upper respiratory tract.


That brand of tea is widely sold by Coles, Woolworths, Aldi and IGA’s, with all stores across NSW, Queensland, Victoria, South Australia and the ACT instructed to remove the product.

Any customers who bought the tea are being urged not to drink it and return it to the store of purchase for a full refund.

The recall at Coles, Woolworths and IGA applies to best before dates from 08/01/23 up to and including 22/01/23.

The recall at Aldi relates to products with best before dates from 08/02/2023 up to and including 11/02/2023.
