The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has issued a warning not to consume pumpkin butter from Birtch Farms and Estate Winery.

The CFIA said the pumpkin butter may be contaminated with Clostridium botulinum, a bacteria that can produce toxins that cause botulism, a life-threatening illness.

The affected product was sold in 110 millilitre and 250 millilitre jars. The CFIA said all lot codes are affected by the alert.

Oxford County’s Birtch Farms and Estate Winery is voluntarily recalling the product. It was distributed in Ontario.

So far, there have been no reports of illnesses.

Food contaminated with C. botulinum toxin may not look or smell spoiled, according to the CFIA.

Consuming food contaminated with the toxin may cause nausea, vomiting, fatigue, dizziness, headache, double vision, dry throat, respiratory failure and paralysis. In severe cases, people may die.
