Snapchill has recalled hundreds of coffee products due to botulinum toxin concerns. FastCompany tells you what you need to know.

Coffee lovers, beware! Hundreds of coffee shops products are being recalled due to concerns that they could provide the perfect breeding ground for a potentially deadly toxin. The coffee products were manufactured by Snapchill LLC of Green Bay, Wis., but are sold under dozens of different brands.

Reason for revocation

Snapchill initiated voluntary recall hundreds of its products. They may contain botulinum toxin, which causes botulism, a fatal form of food poisoning.

According to the recall notice posted on the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) website, the manufacturing process resulted in low levels of acid in the canned food. Low acid conditions are fraught with growth and botulinum toxin production.

To date, no illnesses have been reported. The product is being recalled out of an abundance of caution due to the possibility of botulism contamination.

What is botulism

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), botulinum toxin is a toxin produced by several bacteria. It affects the nerves in the human body, which can lead to muscle paralysis, difficulty breathing and even death.

Botulism is a poisoning caused by a toxin that affects peripheral nerves.

The FDA says common symptoms include constipation and bloating. Signs of botulism can appear as early as six hours after eating food containing botulinum toxin or as long as two weeks. Department experts advise people experiencing symptoms of botulism to immediately seek medical help.

What products are being recalled?

Snapchill LLC is recalling more than 250 products. Each of them has a roaster name and an additional product name. Coffee roaster names include everything from Alchemy Roasting to Wild Goose Coffee.

A complete list of recalled products is available in PDF format here.

The FDA recall notice states that the products were sold in metal cans in a variety of sizes, ranging from 7 to 12 ounces. The recalled products will have "Produced and distributed by Snapchill LLC" or "Snapchill Coffee" printed below the nutrition facts panel on the cans.

Where were the products sold?

The products were distributed throughout the country through various retail stores as well as online.
