Bottled water is number-one, but coffee is the 2nd most-consumed beverage in the United States, and has been for quite a long while. As coffee lovers and consumers know, there are a variety of ways to get that java fix, and canned coffees have been growing in market popularity.

With so many different brands of canned coffees available, the announcement a couple of days back of a recall involving over 100 brands because of botulism concerns is forcing many coffee lovers to take stock of what brands they have around the house, because no one wants to mess with botulism.

No matter how badly you might need that caffeine fix.

For Those Who Are Unfamiliar, Botulism Is A Potentially Fatal Form Of Food Poisoning

As someone who was once diagnosed with botulism poisoning, I can attest first-hand that it's really something you want to avoid at all costs. I was exposed via canned mushrooms that had gone really bad, and while I was lucky to have gotten through it, I'll tell you that it was one of life's worst experiences.

According to the FDA, botulism usually presents with these symptoms, which can show up anywhere from 6 hours to 2 weeks after ingestion of the botulinum toxin:

  • general weakness
  • dizziness
  • double-vision
  • trouble speaking or swallowing
  • difficulty breathing
  • muscle weakness
  • abdominal distension
  • vomiting
  • constipation

The World Health Organization (WHO) says that the incidence of botulism is low, but "the mortality rate is high if prompt diagnosis and appropriate, immediate treatment (early administration of antitoxin and intensive respiratory care) are not given. The disease can be fatal in 5 to 10% of cases."
