Death Wish Coffee Company is issuing a recall of its nitro brew cans because of the potential growth of a deadly toxin.

According to the Food and Drug Administration, the company recalled 11oz. Death Wish Nitro Cold Brew cans because the current process could lead to the growth and production of botulin, which can lead to botulism.

Botulism is a potentially fatal form of food poisoning and can cause symptoms like weakness, dizziness, double vision, difficult breathing and more.


They have halted the production of the Nitro Cold Brew until an additional step in the manufacturing process is implemented.

They have also removed cans from the company's online stores.

The company said they will make sure everyone who bought the product on their website receives a full refund within 60 days.

So far, no illnesses have been reported.
