Summer is the time of year for fast meals around a campfire, if your campfire meal time consists of something called Great Value Brand Original Chili with Beans, or Great Value Brand Hot Chili with Beans, best get rid of that can now.
Before it comes back to haunt you in more than the usual ways.
The twin brands of chili are sold through Wal Mart Canada stores and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency has issued a warning that the contents may not be in your best interests.
Four cases of botulism poisoning have been reported in the USA, while none so far have surfaced in Canada, but to be on the safe side, if you have the 425 gram can in your grub box, your best move is to throw it out and make other plans.

If you have any cans of Great Value Brand Original Chili with Beans, or Great Value Brand Hot Chili with Beans, purchased at a Wal- Mart store, get rid of it.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says there is a concern about possible botulism contamination.
The recall involves product sold in 425 gram cans exclusively at Wal-Mart stores across Canada.
In the U.S., four cases of botulism poisoning have been associated with certain chili products. So far, there have been no cases of botulism poisoning reported in Canada.
Although the contents of the can may look or smell fine, there is no guarantee it has not spoiled. If you have such a product, you are advised to return it to point of purchase, or throw it in the garbage.
