Death Wish Coffee recalls nitro brew cans over possible deadly toxin

Death Wish Coffee recalls nitro brew cans over possible deadly toxin”

Nitrogen-infused coffee is a fairly new process, in which at the moment, there are few federal standards and regulations through the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

In what it's calling a "precautionary measure", Death Wish Coffee-a highly caffeinated niche brand that gained national exposure thanks to its 2016 Super Bowl ad-is issuing a recall of its Death Wish Nitro Cold Brew canned product.

Consumers who have purchased Death Wish Nitro Cold Brew should not consume it and can either dispose of it or return the product to the location with proof of purchase for a full refund. "We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause our customers and our retail partners, but we believe this is the right precautionary measure to take".

Death Wish coffee contains more than 700 mg of caffeine per 12 fluid ounces, according to the company. It was sold through the company's online store, and has been pulled from shelves at Price Chopper/Market 32, Healthy Living Market & Café, and independent retailers at the behest of Death Wish Coffee. "We have also gone a step further, to make sure that everyone who purchased the product on deathwishcoffee.com will receive a full refund within 60 days".

The company, which is based in Round Lake, New York, said it was halting production of its Cold Brew cans until an extra step is added to their manufacturing process to address the botulism risk. Clostridium botulinum toxin is ubiquitous throughout the environment.

Botulism is a potentially fatal form of food poisoning and can cause symptoms like weakness, dizziness, double vision, hard breathing and more. In short, it looks like our process wasn't ideal and we're excited to revisit it with guidance from some of the most meticulous scientists in the world.
