Kraft Heinz is recalling around 7,000 cases of cheese dip that could potentially lead to botulism.

The company is recalling Taco Bell Salsa Con Queso Mild Cheese Dip because the product is showing signs that it could allow for the growth of the bacteria that causes botulism, a potentially deadly form of food poisoning.

The recall affects 15 oz. jars with “best when used by” dates ranging from October 31, 2018, to January 23, 2019.

Consumers who purchased this product should not eat it and return it to the store where purchased for an exchange or full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-800-310-3704 Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Eastern, for a full refund.

No illnesses have been reported.

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 distension and constipation may also be common symptoms. People experiencing these problems should seek immediate medical attention.
