Kraft Heinz is voluntarily recalling about 7,000 cases of its Taco Bell Cheese Dip over botulism fears.

The company said it was recalling 15-ounce cases of the Taco Bell Salsa Con Queso Mild Cheese Dip that had “best when used by” dates ranging from Oct. 31, 2018 to Jan. 23, 2019.

Botulism is a rare but potentially fatal form of food poisoning that can cause paralysis and is sometimes linked to contaminated food.

Kraft Heinz said no cases of illnesses have been reported.

The move follows recalls by other major packaged food companies including Kellogg’s Honey Smacks cereal, Campbell Soup’s Goldfish Crackers and Mondelez International’s Ritz Cracker due to potential salmonella contamination.
