The makers of a hot dog chili sauce are voluntarily recalling their product, after two Texas children and two adults get botulism from the product.

Castleberry's food company is cooperating with the F-D-A, U-S-D-A, and C-D-C in the investigation of the Augusta, Georgia plant where its 10-ounce cans of hot dog chili sauce were packaged.

Hot dog chili sauce products in the recall include Castleberry's, Austex and Kroger brands, with "best by" dates from April 30, 2009 through May 22, 2009.

Consumers should not use these products, even if they look or smell o-k.

You can return labels to the store where the product was purchased -- for refunds.

All the victims are expected to recover.
