Some Mateína yerba mate drinks have been pulled from shelves over caffeine-related concerns.
Yerba-mate lovers beware! There has been a recent recall that should concern tea drinkers. The Canadian government has recalled two Mateína yerba mate beverages for not being properly labeled, putting drinkers at risk of ingesting too much caffeine.

The Mateína yerba mate recall is the second food/beverage recall we’ve covered today at PopCulture.com, following the Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough recall.
