Kombucha Update! Synergy's GT Dave Speaks
Earlier we reported that Whole Foods Market pulled kombucha from the shelves over concerns of "slightly elevated" alcohol levels. The founder of Synergy Kombucha, G.T. Dave, spoke to the media about the situation, and even addresses the rumor that Lindsay Lohan being photographed with kombucha led to scrutiny over the brand's alcohol content (Lindsay was ordered by a judge to wear a SCRAM bracelet and is not permitted to drink alcohol).

G.T. Dave (pictured above left) tells X17online:
"We are investigating reports of the potential for slightly elevated alcohol levels in our Kombucha products that may be occurring after the product has been bottled and has left our facility. Although our products are tested to be compliant at the time of shipping, a subsequent increase in alcohol levels could potentially cause the product to go above 0.5% causing potential labeling issues.

We are working quickly to identify the possible causes and which lot codes and/or regions are being potentially affected. Please keep in mind that this is not related to any type of food contamination, is not a recall, had NOTHING to do with Lindsay Lohan and that you can still find our products at certain retailers. We are trying our best to get our product back on the shelves of every store. Until that happens, you can check the store locator featured on our website for further information on these retailers."
Developing.... Stay tuned for more kombucha updates!
