Woman poisoned by San Francisco herbal tea, dies

San Francisco health officials encourage anyone who purchased tea from the Chinatown location to stop consuming it.

A woman who was sickened and left in critical condition after consuming herbal tea from a San Francisco medicinal shop in San Francisco's Chinatown has died, health authorities announced Monday. Both people drank tea that was mixed in the store from several different ingredients, authorities said, adding that the shop was cooperating with the investigation. The teas had several ingredients, and the ingredients that were common to both tea mixtures are now being tested, authorities said.

The San Francisco Medical Examiner has been working to determine the official cause of death, the San Francisco Chronicle said. For now, all the tea's ingredients have been removed from the store's shelves.

The other victim, a man in his 30s who was hospitalized earlier this month, recovered and was released from the hospital on March 12, according to Department of Public Health spokeswoman Rachael Kagan.
