  • Elevate Snapchill Coffee in the 354ml size—7 86899 57461 6 with an expiration date of July 7, 2024.

The drink is being recalled from the marketplace because it may permit the growth of Clostridium botulinum.

Symptoms in adults include facial paralysis, unresponsive pupils, difficulty swallowing, drooping eyelids, blurred or double vision, and speech difficulties including slurred speech and altered voice. Children may experience difficulty swallowing, slurred speech, weakness, and paralysis. Botulism doesn’t induce fever, but severe cases can be fatal.
