Faribault Foods, Inc. initiated a nationwide recall of several canned beans products that were distributed in the United States. According to the manufacturer, the cans may have a defective seal that can allow dangerous bacteria to grow and might lead to botulism poisoning. The company is recalling its
- Faribault’s 15-ounce cans of S&W Organic Black Beans,
- O Organic Brand Black Beans, and
- O Organic Brand Chili Beans.
According to a U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s notice, the company believes the cans could have a defective hermetic seal which may cause the aluminum cans to bloat, leak, or enable bacteria to grow within the canned beans.
After the company received several complaints concerning the “failure of the hermetic seal,” Faribault Foods, Inc. issued a recall for the specific lots that were distributed to grocery stores between February 2021 and April 2021. Those canned food products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase for either a refund or replacement.
According to the news report, Faribault Foods stated that the issue has been fixed and noted that “no other product, aside from the ones listed, has been affected.”
The FDA warned consumers in the recall notice that Clostridium botulinum poisoning can begin within six hours of consumption and could cause blurred vision, double vision, slurred speech, drooping eyelids, difficulty swallowing, muscle weakness, paralysis of the breathing muscles, which could result in death.
