HEALTH ALERT: Corfinio Foods canned soup and sauces may contain deadly toxin

Posted: Updated:
RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

The Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services is warning consumers about canned soups and sauces made by Corfinio Food that may contain a deadly toxin.

VDACS says the locally-made products were improperly processed, making them susceptible to Clostridium botulinum contamination. The toxin can lead to serious illness or death.

The products have been sold at the Brandermill Green Market. If you have purchased any of these products, VDACS says you should discard them immediately - double bag the jars in plastic bags and place in a trash receptacle for non-recyclable trash, then wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water.

Corfinio Foods is working with VDACS to fix the problems. No cases of illness have been reported.
