Minnesota-based Faribault Foods Inc. has issued a recall of packaged white beans due to the presence of an undeclared allergen, according to an Oct. 17 notice from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
The recall affects 15-ounce packages of S&W-branded white beans that contain sulfites, which could run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction to people with an allergy or severe sensitivity to sulfites, the FDA said.
The white beans being recalled have a best-before date of Aug. 23, 2020 and were manufactured in Fairbault, Minn. They were distributed in retail outlets across Washington, Oregon, and Alaska, including Walmart Inc. stores in those states.
There have been no reported illnesses linked to the product to date, the agency said.
The FDA added that the recall was issued after a customer discovered that the beans in the can are garbanzo beans, mislabeled as white beans. The problem was caused by a temporary breakdown in the company’s packaging processes, according to the announcement.
The department is urging customers to return the affected products to their place of purchase for a refund or replacement.
