Don't Eat The Botulism Tainted Asiago Cheese Dip, Please

There are some jars of Olivier brand Parmesan & Asiago Dip with Garlic & Basil floating around that are possibly tainted with botulism, so you’ll want to check your cupboards.

Botulism toxin has a nasty habit of killing people, so it’s imperative that you not eat the dip. No illnesses have been reported so far.

Here’s the info:

The product was distributed to William-Sonoma retail stores nationwide and to Olivier Napa Valley retail stores located in Truckee and St. Helena, California. Olivier Parmesan & Asiago Dip with Garlic & Basil labeled with the following lot codes are affected by the recall: OPA 34171; OPA 23471; OAP 17271; OAP 17671; OAP 36061; OAP 36161; OPA 33961.

The recalled product is packaged in an 11.76 ounce jar. The lot code information is located on the side of the glass jar where there is no label.

If you have this product, double bag it and dispose of it safely.

    Shouldn’t the headline read “Pardon me, do you have any botulism-tainted asiago chesse dip? But of course!”

  3. PatrickIs2Smart says:

    It’s all good… I’m not fancy, nothing to worry about here.

  6. Sure I could agree with you, but then we'd BOTH be wrong. says:

    Gotta love Botulism…

    Inject it in your skin, and it makes you look younger.

    Injest it, and it makes you look MUCH older (as in DEAD)

    This reminds me of the time I bought CattleDrive chili at Costco, ate it, and then 3 months later got a letter from Costco saying that the chili had been recalled due to being tainted with botulism.

    That was a bit scary.

    Home-made canned or jarred garlic can easily have the same problem, as can home-smoked oysters.

    @hypnotik_jello: Only if it sits too long. Some of that fresh chicken at the local supermarket wasn’t. Day 5 and I’m still moving kinda slow.

    as a former employee, its was my duty to up sell the customer products they did not ask for or need and recommend add-on items. would you like to add some botulism tainted asiago dip with your $12 croutons. a horrible company which old women and drones work primarily for a 40% discount on overly inflated items, only 20% on electrics.
