On December 10, the Sweet Leaf Tea Company announced a voluntary recall of Sweet Leaf Tea in 16-ounce glass bottles because of the possible presence of glass fragments.

This was the result of glass breakage during the filling process. Consumers could be cut or injured if they ingest glass fragments. The company has received four complaints of glass in the product, but no reports of injuries, according to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

The recall is limited to specific production codes of Sweet Leaf Tea that were distributed between February 27, 2015 and December 6, 2015. Only 16 ounce glass bottles and certain tea flavors are affected. The recalled flavors are Sweet Leaf Tea Raspberry, Sweet Leaf Half and Half Lemonade Tea, Sweet Leaf Tea Original, Sweet Leaf Tea Green Tea with Citrus, Sweet Leaf Tea Peach, and Sweet Leaf Tea Mint & Honey. A list of manufacturing codes, production dates, and UPC numbers can be found on the FDA web site, along with photos of product labels. Consumers can find the manufacturing code on the shoulder of a bottle or on the shipping case.

The Sweet Leaf Tea Company said all recalled products are being removed from store shelves. Consumers who have any of the teas in glass bottles from the affected date codes should not drink the product. Consumers can contact Sweet Leaf toll-free at 1-877-832-5323 Monday through Friday 8am to 8pm EST for replacement product, or consumers can return the product to the place of purchase for a refund.

The company says the recall is being conducted with the knowledge of and in cooperation with the FDA.

My experience with Parker Waichman was very professional and thorough from the first day I met with Gerard Ryan regarding my 9/11 claim. He explained in detail how the process works. The paralegals on my case were wonderful in instructing me how to gather my information and what to do at the different stages of the claim. I first worked with Christina Morace followed by Shelly Davis and concluded with Gina Viti. Each of these women was very detailed and helpful in instructing me on what I needed to do. They were very professional, kind and pleasant in all my telephone conversations with them. I must give extra credit to Christina the first person that communicated with me after meeting with Gerard. At a certain stage Shelly Davis began working with me and I found her to be very professional, pleasant and detailed in her instructions. The final stage of the claim I worked with Gina who was also very kind and pleasant. It would have been a pleasure if I had met them in person. Thanks to each of them my case was successfully filed and accepted. Thanks Parker Waichman. Great job Gerald, Christine, Shelly and Gina. No hesitation in recommending you.
