Sweet Leaf Tea Recalled, Glass Fragments Found

Not every company is having a happy holiday season though; Sweet Leaf Tea has been recalled! And the reason is unsettling to customers: Glass fragments were found floating in the drinks. The company received its first complaint in July regarding the floating glass, but it was believed to be an isolated incident. Recently, three other complaints have surfaced, which was enough for Sweet Leaf to issue a voluntary recall as a precautionary measure. According to Sweet Leaf, no injuries were reported, and the presence of glass fragments was the result of glass breakage during the filling process.
