Did Salmonella in tea help those stars trim up for Oscars?

Watching the iconized stars walk the red carpet at the Oscars after their cayenne, lemon and tea detox to squeeze into those outfits I wonder: how many lost weight using the barf-from Salmonella diet?

Yesterday the Canadian Food Inspection Agency warned folks not to consume certain Tega brand Organic Lemon Hibiscus Green Rooibos Herbal Tea because it may be contaminated with Salmonella.

Today, CFIA added Murchie’s Lemon Drop Tea and Co-Op Gold Organic Pomegranate White Tea to the list.

Would Salmonella survive the tea-making process? Probably not. Is cross contamination a risk when handling a tea bag? Probably yes.
