Death Wish Coffee, a very popular (and strong) brand of coffee, is recalling its Death Wish Nitro product because, well, there’s a chance it can actually kill you.
According to their press release, a process specialist recommended that they add an additional step to our nitro cold brew production process. Based on these recommendations, they decided to recall all Death Wish Nitro cans.
They note that if anyone has any cans of the Nitro at home to get rid of it. No illnesses have been reported in connection with the issue and that the recall is merely a precautionary step.
As the U.S. Food and Drink Administration (FDA) detailed in a release, the current process used to make the canned cold brew infused with nitrogen has the potential to create botulin.
Botulin is a toxin that causes people to experience a severe and potentially fatal form of food poisoning. And the FDA warns can also lead to, “weakness, dizziness, double-vision and trouble with speaking or swallowing.”
