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.

Fairbault Foods, Inc. is voluntarily recalling beans that may put consumers at risk of botulism poisoning.

The company is recalling 15 ounce cans of S&W Organic Black Beans, O Organic Brand Black Beans, and O Organic Brand Chili Beans because the cans may have compromised seals.

A compromised hermetic seal may affect the can's integrity, leading to leaks, bloating and bacteria growth that could include the bacteria that causes botulism.

Signs of botulism poisoning include paralysis of the breathing muscles which can lead to death if not hospitalized.

The beans were sold at Costco stores. So far no illnesses have been linked to the recalled cans. Consumers should return the beans to the store for a refund or replacement.
