According to an FDA report, Illinois-based Berner Food Inc. has begun recalling the Kirkland Signature Colombian Cold Brew coffee, which is produced for the Costco department store chain.
Berner Foods reported that the recall of coffee cans is due to the potential risk of metal debris, and according to the company, it is likely that a metal bolt had entered the beverage.
“No injuries have been reported due to this issue and the potential risk is minimal, however, consumer safety is of paramount importance to us,” Berner Foods announced.
The company also commented that there were likely three cans affected out of a total of 3.4 million that were produced.
Likewise, they also asked customers who purchased the beverage to refrain from drinking coffee and instead returned to the nearest Costco store.
Recall is still ongoing and affects 231,071 cases, approximately 2,772,852 cans of the beverage.
According to the FDA announcement, these products were distributed to stores in California, Colorado, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, Texas, Utah, and Washington.
