Faribault Foods Inc. is initiating a voluntary recall of a limited number of 15-ounce No-Salt-Added Black Beans due to the potential presence of plastic and/or metal pieces within the product. This voluntary recall covers one specific production code and was distributed under the following labels

  • Hy-Vee No-Salt-Added Black Beans
  • La Preferida Low Sodium Black Beans (Frijoles Negros Bajo En Sodio)
  • Our Family No-Salt-Added Black Beans
  • Sprouts No-Salt-Added Black Beans
  • Mrs. Grimes No-Salt-Added Black Beans
  • Kuner’s No-Salt-Added Black Beans (Frijoles Negros)
  • HEB Black No-Salt-Added Beans (Frijol Negro Sin Sal)

The voluntary recall is limited to the production code of 15-ounce product manufactured at the facility in Faribault with can code “Best By 04 APR 2019 258F2 095 16 XXXX.” To locate the production code, consumers should look at the bottom of the can. No other production codes, sizes or brands of Faribault Foods Inc. products are affected by this recall.

No injuries have been reported. This has been determined to be an isolated incident. The company is recalling these products because they may contain small pieces of plastic and/or metal that may cause injury. While the investigation continues, the company says it believes the source of the plastic and/or metal was an ink pen that entered the product stream. Faribault Foods Inc. is taking this action out of an abundance of caution after one consumer reported finding a partial ink pen in one container.

Consumers who may have purchased the products listed above should not consume them but should instead return them to the store where purchased for a refund or replacement.

Faribault Foods also states: "The quality and safety of our products are the top priority for our company. We apologize to our retail customers and consumers and sincerely regret any inconvenience created by this recall. We are working with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration on this voluntary recall and will cooperate with them fully."
