Manufacturer voluntarily recalls canned organic beans

The state Department of Health 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.

Those items, which are shipped to and sold in Hawaii stores, were voluntarily recalled by Faribault Foods Inc. because the cans might have a compromised hermetic seal. The compromised hermetic seal could affect can integrity and might cause the cans to leak, bloat or allow bacteria to grow inside the product, which could lead to serious illness.
