Death Wish coffee recalled over botulism concerns

Death Wish coffee recalled over botulism concerns

Death Wish Coffee Company, a New York-based coffee producer that advertises itself as maker of the “world’s strongest coffee,” is recalling some of its products over concerns that it could become tainted with the deadly botulin toxin. >> Read more trending news Officials with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said in a notice issued Tuesday that 11-ounce cans of Death Wish Nitro Cold Brew were being recalled after the company determined that the process used to make the drinks “could lead to the growth and production of the deadly toxin botulin.” Botulism is a potentially fatal form of food poisoning that can cause dizziness, double-vision, difficulty breathing, weakness and constipation, among other symptoms. Company officials said in a notice posted to the Death Wish Coffee website that the recall was issued as a precaution and that no illnesses have been reported in connection to the drinks. “Our customers’ safety is of paramount importance,” Death Wish Coffee Co. owner Mike Brown said in a statement. He said the recall was a “proactive step to ensure that the highest quality, safest and, of course, strongest coffee products we produce are of industry-exceeding standards.” The process used to make the canned coffee, which is infused with nitrogen, is relatively new and little regulated, according to company officials. Death Wish Coffee Co. tested its method for producing the drinks for nearly four months, with the help of an outside process authority, before it got a recommendation to tweak its manufacturing process to ensure no botulin toxins are produced. According to company officials, “With any nitrogen-based products on the market there is a remote possibility of the risk of Clostridium botulinum, a serious pathogen that can lead to the growth and production of the deadly toxin botulin in low-acid foods commercialized in reduced oxygen packaging.” Death Wish Coffee Co. has halted production of its Nitro Cold Brew drinks as it adjusts its manufacturing process. Officials noted that, despite the concerns, “the company has passed all FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and state inspections since its founding.” Any customers who have cans of Death Wish Nitro Cold Brew are asked to dispose of the drink or return it for a full refund.

Deputies: Men hold Uber driver at gunpoint; mistake him for burglar

Deputies: Men hold Uber driver at gunpoint; mistake him for burglar

Roberto Augustin had just finished making a food delivery for Uber on Saturday night when he became lost inside a neighborhood in unincorporated Delray Beach, Florida. As Augustin tried to find his way out, he was approached by two armed men riding in a golf cart. “Get out of the car, or we’re going to kill you,” Augustin heard as his body froze in fear. The men, pointing handguns at his head, ordered Augustin to get on his knees and put his hands in the air. One of the men then fired a warning shot into the air that Augustin said whizzed past his head. “I thought it was my last day,” said Augustin, 32. >> Read more trending news According to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, the gunmen weren’t robbers but a pair of community watch members on patrol. The incident took place just before midnight. Dustyn Brandon Jenkins, 36, and Micah Paul Mercer, 41, told deputies they saw Augustin driving around the Country Club Acres neighborhood — just west of Military Trail and south of Atlantic Avenue — in a “suspicious manner” and that when they approached him, Augustin became aggressive and charged at them. That caused them to draw their weapons and point them at Augustin, they said. Jenkins admitted firing a warning shot to keep Augustin from fleeing, the report said. Augustin told deputies he thought Jenkins and Mercer were out to rob him because neither man was wearing any identification and both were in plain clothes. Augustin said he has been working as an Uber driver for less than six months and was not familiar with the area. Augustin said he was struggling to find a way out when Jenkins and Mercer came at him. >> Read more Floridoh! Stories The arrest report shows the incident took place in front of Mercer’s home in the 15100 block of Hayes Road. Country Club Acres’ Facebook page describes it as a community of more than 500 single-family homes established in 1958. “I was so scared,” said Augustin, who is originally from Haiti. “I didn’t know what they were after. I thought I was going to die.” Jenkins and Mercer are each facing a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Jenkins is also facing a charge of firing a weapon in public. Jenkins and Mercer were released from the Palm Beach County Jail on Sunday after posting $3,000 bonds. The men were ordered during a court appearance Sunday not to have any contact either with each other or Augustin or to possess any weapons.

Death penalty sought for accused Kissimmee cop killer

Prosecutors with the state announced Friday that they plan to seek the death penalty against the man accused of killing two Kissimmee police officers.

President Trump heads to Alabama to boost Sen. Luther Strange

Ahead of a Tuesday Republican runoff, President Donald Trump is fully inserting himself in a U.S. Senate race in Alabama, holding a rally Friday night for Sen. Luther Strange (R-AL), who faces a spirited challenge from former Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore, in a race that has strained GOP alliances in the Yellowhammer State.

The President will stop tonight in Huntsville, Alabama – not far from there, Mr. Trump had a gigantic rally back in late February of 2016, as he drew some 30,000 people to a football stadium in Madison.
