ST. PAUL, Minn. – A Minnesota company is recalling tea bags because of possible allergy danger.

The Minnesota Department of agriculture say the label on bags of TeaSource brand Roasted Chestnut Tea did not list tree nuts (almonds) as an ingredient. No illnesses have been connect to the tea but state officials says those sensitive to tree nuts should be aware they are part of the product.

The Roseville-based manufacture says the mislabeled tea bags were produced and distributed through July 24 in 2-ounce, 4-ounce, and 1-pound bags.

Anyone with questions about this voluntary recall may contact TeaSource at 1-877-768-7233.
