Canned Meat Recall Leads to Plant Shutdown

Castleberry's Food Company has had to close its production facility in Augusta, Georgia, because company officials say 16 cans of chili sauce tested positive over the weekend for the bacteria that causes botulism.

So far, four cases of botulism have been reported, two from Indiana and two from Texas. All four people consumed Hot Dog Chili Sauce Original, a product made by Castleberry's.

 On Saturday, Castleberry's recalled more than 80 types of canned chili, beef stew, corned beef hash and other meat products in addition to the ten brands it recalled Thursday.

Company officials say they are working closely with the Food and Drug Administration and the Department of Agriculture to determine just how widespread the problem is.

Lubbock grocers, including United, Wal-Mart, and Lowe's have been instructed to remove Castleberry products from store shelves.

Consumers should return labels to the store where the product was purchased, for a full refund.
