Kraft Heinz is voluntarily recalling about 7,000 cases, (yes, cases) of its Taco Bell Cheese Dip after the jars showed signs that they could allow for growth of botulism-causing bacteria. What signs, you ask? Product separation, which can create conditions allowing growth of Clostridium botulinum. Thankfully, no cases of illness have been reported yet. But if you have 15-ounce cans of Taco Bell Salsa Con Queso Mild Cheese Dip with "best when used by" dates of Oct. 31, 2018 to Jan. 23, 2019, return it to the store for a refund or throw it out. Even if it looks and smells okay, you should not eat it.

Botulism is an extreme form of food poisoning that can even be fatal. Symptoms to look for include general weakness, dizziness, double vision, difficulty swallowing and speaking. Abdominal distension, difficulty breathing, and constipation may also be symptoms. If you have any of these seek immediate medical attention.
