If you have these olives in your establishment do not serve them or eat them. Do not use them in cooking. You can throw the olives away in a double bagged or sealed container so other people can’t access them, or you can take them back to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Symptoms of botulism food poisoning occur about 18 to 36 hours after eating food contaminated with the toxin. Symptoms start at the top of the body and move downward in a symmetrical manner. Symptoms include difficulty swallowing, double vision, drooping eyelids, blurry vision, slurred speech, vomiting, difficulty moving the eyes, stomach pain, and diarrhea. Eventully it becomes difficult to breathe. There is an antidote to this toxin, but it must be given in a hospital through an IV.
