Food safety officials have sounded the alarm after hundreds of canned coffee products were recalled over fears of toxic contamination.

The company is voluntarily recalling more than 250 Snapchill LLC coffee products after the FDA raised concerns about cross-contamination with the deadly botulinum toxin, which can cause botulism.

The federal agency reportedly flagged problems with the company’s low-acid canning method, which risks allowing the toxin to grow and spread to potentially lethal levels.

There are no current reports of users falling ill with botulism, which is a type of food poisoning that can cause a number of health emergencies including breathing problems, weakness, dizziness, and trouble speaking.

Snapchill LLC, which makes a variety of canned coffee products, voluntarily recalled more than 250 products over fears of botulinum contamination.

The FDA reportedly warned the coffee company after finding that it violated regulations by not notifying the agency that it was using the low-acid method.

While the recall was voluntary, potential cross-contamination from the food toxin could be deadly.

Health officials warn that symptoms can appear in less than six hours, but may not appear for up to two weeks, and victims require urgent medical attention if they contract it.

The coffee company produces a variety of canned cold brews that are sold nationwide, under various brand names.

According to the recall, users are warned to check the packaging of coffee products as Snapchill may not be clearly listed.

Instead, the name would appear under the nutrition facts portion of the package and say “produced and distributed by Snapchill LLC.”

Customers are offered the opportunity to receive a refund from the company, as long as they have proof of purchase and a photo of the can of coffee they purchased.

DailyMail.com has contacted Snapchill LLC for comment.

The company insisted it has received no indication that anyone has become ill from the products, but is issuing the recall out of an abundance of caution.
