Washington, D.C. Sept 22: The US Food And Drugs Administration, FDA, has recalled Death Wish Coffee company’s 11-ounce Death Wish Nitro Cold Brew cans over botulism fears. Botulism is a serious type of food poisoning that can be fatal. If you drink the cold brew, you may actually have a death wishas the FDA says it can actually kill you. Therefore if you have it, you should toss it.

“Death Wish in conjunction with an outside Process Authority has determined that the current process could lead to the growth and production of the deadly toxin, botulin, in low acid foods commercialized in reduced oxygen packaging,” the FDA said in a release.

Death Wish Coffee is a New York–based coffee roaster that promises to deliver the “world’s strongest” brew.

“We’ve crafted Death Wish Coffee, the world’s strongest coffee, using carefully selected, perfectly roasted coffee beans to produce a bold, highly caffeinated coffee blend,” the company’s website states.

“Our customers’ safety is of paramount importance and Death Wish Coffee is taking this significant, proactive step to ensure that the highest quality, safest, and of course, strongest coffee products we produce are of industry-exceeding standards…” Mike Brown, the company’s founder and owner, said in a statement.

Death Wish has promised all in-store and online customers a refund within 60 days.
