Fairbault Foods Inc. has recalled certain cans of S&W Organic Black Beans and O Organic Chili Beans or Black Beans due to a risk of botulism poisoning.

The recalled cans may have a “compromised hermetic seal,” which could allow the cans to leak, bloat, or allow bacteria inside the can.

No illnesses were reported, but there were several consumer complaints about a failure of the seal.

The recall involves S&W Organic Black Beans (15-oz cans) with best-by dates of January 31, 2023; February 1, 2023; February 2, 2023; and February 3, 2023.

The recall also involves O Organic Organic Black Beans (15-oz cans) with a best-by date of February 3, 2023; as well as O Organic Organic Chili Beans (15-oz cans) with a best-by date of February 4, 2023.

The products may have been sold at major stores like Costco, Safeway, Vons, Albertsons, and others.

Bacteria growing in the product could lead to a serious illness, such as infections with Clostridium botulinum, the bacteria that causes botulism — one of the most serious types of food poisoning.

The symptoms of botulism poisoning can begin within 6 hours to 2 weeks after eating contaminated food. The symptoms may progress to paralysis of the breathing muscles and death.
