Health officials warn that some soup sold recently at three Southern California farmers markets could make you sick.

Officials say the soups were improperly produced and could put people at risk of botulism, a serious illness that could lead to death.

The soups were made by two companies: One Gun Ranch of Malibu and Organic Soup Kitchen of Santa Barbara.

One Gun Ranch soups were only sold at the Pacific Palisades Farmers Market, located at Swarthmore Avenue and Sunset Boulevard, from May 13 to June 3. Soups included Campfire Kitchen Cauliflower Soup, Heirloom Tomato Fennel Gaspacho Soup, Sequoia's Skinny Spiced Coconut, Parsnip, and Turmeric Soup, Ossian's Pumpkin Stew, and Freddy's Firegrilled Meatballs. The soups were in 16-ounce glass jars with screw-on metal lids.

Organic Soup Kitchen soups were sold at farmers markets in Calabasas and Studio City between June 6, 2011 to May 6 of this year. Soups included Fire Roasted Yam, Curried Potato Leek, Curry Lentil Bisque, Tomato Bean and Wild Herb, and Mediterranean Chipotle Chili. The soups were packaged in one-quart glass jars with screw-on metal lids.

So far, no illnesses have been reported, but people were advised to throw the soups away.
