Starbucks Tazo Chai Tea Possible Peanut Contamination

Starbucks Coffee Company is issuing a food allergy alert regarding two lot codes of its Tazo Chai Full Leaf tins due to a possible contamination with peanut protein.

The affected Tazo Chai Full Leaf tins were distributed into a limited number of grocery stores in Arizona, California, Nevada and Hawaii. At this time, there are no more than 50 tins that have not yet been retrieved by the Company.

The Tazo Chai Full Leaf tins were distributed in 3.0 ounce size tins. The two impacted lot codes are L06OCT2005 and L08NOV2005. The lot code can be found on a white sticker with black lettering on the bottom of the tin.
