iStock/Thinkstock(LOS ANGELES) — A California company has issued a recall on food that may be linked to botulism.

Two botulism infection cases might be tied to the pine nut basil pesto sauce made by VR Green Farms, a company that sells food products online.

VR Green Farms has recalled the pesto as well as a pickled farm mix, Old World tomato sauce, sun dried tomatoes in olive oil, Tuscan grilling sauce, and pasta sauce.

Health workers say botulism — a rare infection caused by toxins in bacteria — can be fatal.
