Botulism is rare but can be fatal, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

The illness can cause difficulty breathing and muscle paralysis. Symptoms include blurred or double vision, drooping eyelids, slurred speech, difficulty swallowing, a thick-feeling tongue, dry mouth and muscle weakness.

The recall includes about 7,000 cases of that 15-ounce jars of the salsa con queso with "best when used by" dates ranging between Oct. 31, 2018, and Jan. 23, 2019. The items were produced and distributed by Kraft in the U.S.

The company said the affected items are showing signs of product separation, which can allow for the growth of the bacteria that causes botulism.

Kraft said there have been no complaints or reports of illness related to the products.

Kraft urged customers not to eat the dip and return it to the store for an exchange or refund.
