Death Wish Coffee Co., which says it sells the world’s strongest coffee, has recalled its 11-ounce cans of cold-brewed, nitrogen-infused coffee because they could contain potentially deadly botulin toxin. A statement by the company called the recall precautionary and said its “process wasn’t perfect” in manufacturing the coffee.

No one has reported being sickened by the recalled products so far, The Washington Post reported.

Customers with unopened cans can return them to a retailer with proof of purchase, and online orders will be refunded within 60 days, the release said.

The recall was being made because experts had recommended an additional step to their manufacturing process, and Death Wish’s tests had not shown any contamination so far, the release reported.

“Our customers’ safety is of paramount importance and Death Wish Coffee is taking this significant, proactive step to ensure that the highest quality, safest, and of course, strongest coffee products we produce are of industry-exceeding standards, Death Wish founder and owner Mike Brown said, according to the release.

The coffee company has the most caffeine of any coffee on the market, with 54.2 milligrams of caffeine per ounce, according to its site. Typical coffee has about 12 to 16 milligrams of caffeine per ounce, according to Consumer Reports.

Twitter users noticed the irony of the recall.
