Death Wish Coffee Has Been Recalled Because It Could Actually Kill You

So far no one has actually gotten sick or died from drinking the coffee. But if you have it, you should toss it.

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.

However, if you drink the cold brew, you may actually have a death wish. The FDA has recalled the 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.

“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.

So far, no one has actually been sickened — or died — from drinking the coffee. But Death Wish said that if you have its cold brew, you need to toss it.

“We're having a recall party, and you're invited–do not drink any unopened Nitro. Discard it,” the company wrote on its website.

The company called the recall “a precautionary step.”

“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.
