Coffee recall due to potentially fatal food poisoning: FDA

(WJW) – Nearly 300 types of canned coffee products distributed nationwide through different coffee roasters and retailers are being recalled.

According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Snapchill LLC, a Wisconsin-based company, is voluntarily recalling all of its canned coffee products within expiration date because they learned the company’s manufacturing process could lead to a potentially fatal form of food poisoning.

The recall alert states the manufacturing process “could lead to the growth and production of the deadly toxin, botulinum toxin, in low acid canned foods.”

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Botulism, is a rare but serious illness that can cause difficulty breathing, muscle paralysis, and even death. The FDA states symptoms can begin from six hours to two weeks after eating food that contains the toxin.

Here’s what to look for:

The recalled products were sold under a range of roaster and brand names and in variety of metal can sizes ranging from 7 oz to 12 oz., according the FDA.

“The products are identifiable by the language ‘Produced and distributed by Snapchill LLC’ underneath the nutrition facts panel. Some of the products can also be identified by the text ‘Snapchill Coffee’ on the label,” reads the alert.
