There’s a massive canned coffee recall underway that could impact your favorite bottled drink. According to a recent announcement from the Food & Drug Administration, Snapchill is voluntarily recalling all of the canned coffee products that have been manufactured by the company, within expiration date, because the Wisconsin-based brand’s current production process could lead to the growth and creation of the deadly toxin, botulinum toxin, in low acid canned foods.

The now-recalled coffee items were distributed nationwide through various coffee roasters and retail locations, as well as via direct online purchase from Snapchill. The products are sold under more than 250 different roaster and brand names, in a variety of metal can sizes ranging from 7 ounces to 12 ounces. Every recalled product, regardless of the brand, can be identified by the language “Produced and distributed by Snapchill LLC'' underneath the nutrition facts panel. Additionally, some of the products can also be identified by the text “Snapchill Coffee” on the label.

The issue that led to the recall of the above canned coffee products was identified when the FDA notified Snapchill that their process for manufacturing said items was not filed with FDA, as is required by regulation. 

While no illnesses have been reported to-date, and Snapchill is not aware of any instances in which the company’s products contained botulin toxin, consumers should either destroy the recalled products or return them to Snapchill or the place of purchase for a refund. Snapchill will offer full refunds for any of the recalled products, so long as you have the appropriate proof of purchase, as well as a picture of the item(s), which you can email to Compliance@Snapchill.com.

Per the FDA, botulism is a potentially fatal form of food poisoning that can cause general weakness, dizziness, double-vision, and trouble with speaking or swallowing. Other symptoms include difficulty breathing, weakness of other muscles, abdominal distension, and constipation. Symptoms of botulism can begin from six hours to two weeks after eating food that contains botulinum toxin. People experiencing these problems should seek immediate medical attention.
