FDA Issues Warning for Over 300 Canned Coffee Brands Due to Fatal Poisoning Risk

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has announced close to 300 types of canned coffee brands are being recalled due to having links to a fatal type of food poisoning.

Snapchill LLC, based in Wisconsin, voluntarily initiated the recall after discovering that its manufacturing process “could lead to the growth and production of the deadly toxin, botulinum toxin, in low-acid canned foods.”

Botulism is a rare form of food poisoning that can cause double vision, weakness, dizziness, trouble with speaking, and, at times, can be fatal.

Snapchill LLC coffee products are distributed all across the United States through various retail locations and coffee shops.

Manufactured products distributed by Snapchill LLC can be identified by looking under your coffee’s nutritional label and seeing the phrase “Produced and distributed by Snapchill LLC.”

Per The Hill:

Nearly 300 types of canned coffee distributed nationwide are being recalled over botulism concerns, according to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Snapchill LLC, a Wisconsin-based company, is voluntarily recalling the canned coffee after learning their manufacturing process could lead to the potentially deadly food poisoning.

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

The canned coffee was distributed nationwide through various coffee roasters and retail locations as well as through direct online purchases from Snapchill.
