CHICAGO, IL (WATE) – Kraft Heinz is recalling around 7,000 cases of cheese dip that could potentially lead to botulism.

The company is recalling Taco Bell Salsa Con Queso Mild Cheese Dip because the product is showing signs that it could allow for the growth of the bacteria that causes botulism, a potentially deadly form of food poisoning.

The recall affects 15 oz. jars with “best when used by” dates ranging from October 31, 2018 to January 23, 2019.

Anyone who bought these jars should return them to the store for an exchange or refund. No illnesses have been reported. 

Consumers with questions can contact the company at 1-800-310-3704 Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Eastern, for a full refund. 

Kraft Heinz says the product was distributed to retailers in the United States.  

The company says so far no consumer complaints or reports of illnesses have been filed.
