Pickled Beets Recalled Due to Botulism Risk

Lakeside Foods Inc. has recalled about 3,000 cans of pickled beets sold between December 2009 and January 2011.

Some cans of the Wisconsin-based company’s 105-ounce pickled sliced beets could be under processed and may be contaminated with harmful organisms including Clostridium and botulinum.

Botulism is a potentially fatal form of food poisoning that could cause general weakness, dizziness, double vision, difficulty breathing, constipation and trouble with speaking or swallowing.

No illnesses have been reported.
