Botulism Recall: Corfinio Foods

The Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services is warning consumers not to eat any canned soups or sauces made by Corfinio Foods of Richmond, VA, because they were improperly processed and therefore susceptible to contamination with Clostridium botulinum.

Ingestion of botulism toxin from improperly processed jarred and canned foods may lead to serious illness and death. Although there have been no reported cases of illness associated with these products, the department stated that it was issuing a consumer warning so that people who have previously purchased the products do not consume them.

According to Virginia food safety officials, Corfinio Foods has already suspended production of all of its canned soups and sauces, and the firm is currently working to come into compliance with state requirements.

The soups and sauces are packaged in glass, Mason-style jars with metal, screw-on lids and have been sold at the Brandermill Green Market in Midlothian, VA. The jars are marked with the Corfinio Foods label.
