Food poisoning is no joke, especially when it’s botulism. That’s why Snapchill LLC, a Wisconsin-based company, is taking precautions to ensure that their canned coffees are safe. In order to do that, however, they’re having to recall nearly 300 types of canned coffee that are sold under various brands. The company first became aware of potential issues thanks to the FDA — they notified Snapchill that their process for manufacturing was not filed with them, leading to the discovery.

As of this moment, there have not been any reports of illness due to these products. Rather, the recall alert notes that the manufacturing process “could lead to the growth and production of the deadly toxin, botulinum toxin, in low acid canned foods.” These products, some of which can be viewed in the image below, were distributed nationwide at a variety of coffee roasters and retail locations. They were also available for purchase directly from Snapchill.

Meanwhile, if there’s a chance you have already consumed one of these recalled products, it’s important to be aware of the symptoms of botulism. Although rare, it can be deadly. With this in mind, symptoms can start six hours to two weeks after consuming the dangerous product and can include:

  • General weakness
  • Dizziness
  • Double vision
  • Trouble speaking or swallowing
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Weakness of other muscles
  • Abdominal distension
  • Constipation

If you experience these symptoms, the CDC says it’s important to seek medical attention. Stay safe everyone!
