The company has now expanding its July 19 recall of canned meat products that may contain Clostridium botulinum that causes botulism -a rare but serious paralytic illness. The Centers for Disease Control has also joined the investigation.

The company has now added 80 types of canned meat products to the 10 it recalled last week, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service.

The recall is being expanded after information gathered by the Food and Drug Administration and FSIS indicated that processing malfunctions at the establishment have existed longer than initially estimated. For that reason, Castleberry's has agreed to recall all of the following products that may still be in commerce, regardless of the "best buy" date stamped on the bottom of the can. Consumers who have any of the products listed are urged not to eat them, but rather return or dispose of them.
