The Augusta, Georgia food plant that is the source of a chili sauce recall had production problems around the same time the cans of chili were made that sickened four victims with Botulism.
According to Castleberry's Food Plant Spokesman, a check of the cans had found no problems at the time. The cans were coming out of a heating and sterilizing process too hot before going into a cooling canal.
Company officials stopped production because they wanted to make sure cans had not expanded and possibly allowed contamination. The recall has also expanded to include items like corned beef hash and barbeque pork. The complete recall list is as follows:
