Remember Death Wish Coffee? Brand to be sold in Dayton for first time

Remember Death Wish Coffee?

Yeah, it’s that coffee brand that made headlines last year after one of its nitro coffee products was recalled for potential deadly toxin contamination. The Round Lake, N.Y.-based coffee producer determined that the current packaging process could lead to the growth and production of the deadly toxin, botulin, in low acid foods commercialized in reduced oxygen packaging.

Botulism, a potentially fatal form of food poisoning, can cause the following symptoms: general weakness, dizziness, double-vision and trouble with speaking or swallowing. Difficulty in breathing, weakness of other muscles, abdominal distention and constipation may also be common symptoms.

Fast-forward one year, and the company’s production is back on track with no botulism fears for coffee lovers. Death Wish Coffee will now be available in Dayton starting on June 9 at local Walmart stores. Death Wish’s 18-count coffee K-Cups (aka Death Cups) have been selected to be stocked in 1,627 Walmarts spanning all 50 states. The K-cups will retail for $17.97/box.
