1 min read

PROVIDENCE — Snapchill LLC is recalling all of its canned coffee products due to potential botulinum toxin contamination, the Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) announced Tuesday.

The recall affects all Snapchill canned coffee products within their expiration dates.

The company’s current manufacturing process could allow for the growth and production of botulinum toxin, which can cause botulism, a potentially fatal form of food poisoning.

The recalled products were distributed nationwide through various coffee roasters, retail locations, and direct online purchases from Snapchill.

They are sold under multiple roaster and brand names in metal cans ranging from 7 to 12 ounces.

Consumers can identify the affected products by the text “Produced and distributed by Snapchill LLC” beneath the nutrition facts panel.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) notified Snapchill that the company had not filed the required low acid canned foods process for manufacturing these products.

No illnesses have been reported, and Snapchill is not aware of any instances where their products contained botulinum toxin.

The company is working to file the appropriate notification with the FDA.

Symptoms of botulism can include general weakness, dizziness, double vision, difficulty speaking or swallowing, trouble breathing, muscle weakness, abdominal distension, and constipation.

These symptoms can appear between six hours and two weeks after consuming contaminated food.

Consumers should either destroy the products or return them to Snapchill or the place of purchase for a refund.

The company will offer full refunds with proof of purchase, including a picture of the product before destruction.

For more information, consumers can contact Snapchill at [email protected] or call (920) 632-6018 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. CT, Monday through Friday.
