Faribault Foods, Inc. is voluntarily recalling 15 ounce cans of S&W Organic Black Beans, 15 ounce cans of O Organic Brand Black Beans, and 15 ounce cans of O Organic Brand Chili Beans because the cans may have a compromised hermetic seal.
According to Faribault Foods, the compromised hermetic seal may affect the integrity of the cans and may cause the cans to leak, bloat, or allow bacteria to grow inside the product which could lead to serious illness.
Clostridium botulinum poisoning in humans can begin from six hours to two weeks after eating food that contains the toxin, Faribault Foods said.
