Imported tea tests positive for salmonella

Some samples of a Jamaican specialty tea sold in Georgia have tested positive for salmonella, a sometimes fatal infection, according to the state’s agriculture commissioner.

Lab technicians at the Georgia Department of Agriculture confirmed Friday that packages of Caribbean Dreams Cerasee Tea tested positive for salmonella.

The tea was imported from Kingston, Jamaica. It was sold at Ocho Rios, a store in Tucker, and possibly other locations.
