    The California-based company The Republic of Tea is recalling one of its green tea blends as a precaution over fears of possible salmonella contamination. 

    The company said Monday that the voluntary recall of its Organic Turmeric Ginger Green Tea comes after a supplier said one lot of its organic ginger ingredients could be contaminated. 

    Tests conducted by The Republic of Tea found no salmonella. No illnesses have been reported. 

    Company official Todd Rubin said the recall is a precautionary measure. 

    The Republic of Tea is based in Novato, just north of San Francisco. Its teas are distributed around the world.

    Customers who purchased the tea can return it to The Republic of Tea for a replacement tea, or for a full refund. They can contact the company at teasafety@republicoftea.com or call 1-800-298-4832, Monday-Friday between the hours of 8:00am-5:00pm CST.
