The Hawai‘i Department of Health has issued a product recall based on possible contamination.

DOH is advising consumers to dispose of or return selected 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 voluntarily recalled by Faribault Foods, Inc. and shipped and sold in Hawai‘i at various stores.

The products were voluntarily recalled because the cans may have a compromised hermetic seal. The compromised hermetic seal may affect can integrity and may cause the cans to leak, bloat or allow bacteria to grow inside the product, which could lead to serious illness.  

The Hawai‘i Department of Health is investigating an illness that may be associated with the recalled product. Health inspectors are contacting retailers to alert them to remove the product from their store shelves. The recalled products were distributed nationwide in retail stores, including Hawaii stores and may have been purchased from February 2021 to present.

This event only affects the lot codes listed below. The lot codes are printed on the bottom of the can.
