The Round Lake, NY coffee makers responsible for Death Wish Coffee have issued a recall because one of their products could contain a potentially fatal form of food-poisoning.

The product in question was sold at Price Chopper grocery stores and independent retailers. It has been removed from the shelves.

Death Wish coffee has halted production of the Nitro Cold Brew until they address the packaging issues to prevent the growth of harmful bacteria.

According to a press release:

Death Wish Coffee Co. (“Death Wish”), the Round Lake, N.Y.-based Coffee producer known for producing the ‘World’s Strongest Coffee’, has initiated a recall its 11-oz Death Wish Nitro Cold Brew cans.
