The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has announced an expanded warning for consumers and pet owners regarding canned food products and dog food produced by Castleberry's Food Co. of Augusta, Ga., due to the risk of botulinum toxin. A full list of all recalled Castleberry's products can be viewed in a Press Release from the FDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), released on July 21. According to the press release, "the recall is being expanded after information gathered by the Food and Drug Administration and FSIS indicated that processing malfunctions at the establishment have existed longer than initially estimated." On July 18, the FDA announced that certain cans of hot dog chili sauce have been linked to possible botulism contamination.
