If you purchased this product, do not eat it. You can throw it away in a sealed container or double bagged package inside a secure garbage can with a tight fitting lid, or you can take it back to the store where you bought it for a full refund.

Food contaminated with this toxin will not look, smell, or taste different. Symptoms of botulism food poisoning can start with difficulty swallowing, drooping eyelids, blurred or double vision, and difficulty speaking. Paralysis progresses downward through the body until a person can no longer breathe. There is an antidote to this toxin, but it must be given intravenously in a hospital setting.
