WASHINGTON (dpa-AFX) - Round Lake, N.Y.-based Coffee producer Death Wish Coffee Co. has initiated a recall of its 11-oz Death Wish Nitro Cold Brew cans. No illnesses have been reported to date.
Death Wish, in conjunction with an outside Process Authority, has determined that the current process could lead to the growth and production of the deadly toxin, botulin, in low acid foods commercialized in reduced oxygen packaging.
Botulism, a potentially fatal form of food poisoning, can cause symptoms, including general weakness, dizziness, double-vision and trouble with speaking or swallowing. Diffculty in breathing, weakness of other muscles, abdominal distention and constipation may also be common symptoms.
Death Wish is halting production of Nitro Cold Brew until an additional step in the manufacturing process is implemented.
Death Wish Coffee has removed the Death Wish Nitro cans from its online store and also pulled from shelves at Price Chopper/Market 32, Healthy Living Market & Café, and independent retailers at the behest of Death Wish Coffee.
