Death Wish Coffee Co., which claims to be the “World’s Strongest Coffee,” is recalling its cans of its Death Wish Nitro Cold Brew because there is a risk that the products could become contaminated with the toxin botulin, a potentially fatal form of food poisoning.
“After several rounds of successful testing, a process specialist has recommended that we add an additional step to our nitro cold brew production process. Based on these recommendations we’ve decided to recall all Death Wish Nitro cans. If you have them, please dispose of them,” the company said on its website.
The recall involves Death Wish’s 11-ounce cans of Nitro Cold Brew. The company says that it has removed affected Death Wish Nitro cans from the company’s online store as well as pulled the products from shelves at Price Chopper/Market 32, Healthy Living Market & Café, and independent retailers where the products were sold.
Death Wish is halting production of the product until measures can be taken to correct the issue, and is offering a full refund to consumers who recently purchased the coffee on its website at deathwishcoffee.com.
Botulism can cause symptoms such as general weakness, dizziness, double vision, difficulty speaking or swallowing, breathing difficulty, weakness of other muscles, abdominal distention and constipation. Anyone who has consumed Death Wish coffee and experienced these symptoms should seek medical attention immediately. To date, no incidents of adverse events have been reported related to this recall.
Any side effects regarding Death Wish coffee should be reported to the FDA MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting Program at www.FDA.gov/MedWatch/Report.htm.
