"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," FDA said. "Clostridium botulinum poisoning in humans can begin from six hours to two weeks after eating food that contains the toxin. Symptoms may include double vision, blurred vision, drooping eyelids, slurred speech, difficulty swallowing, and muscle weakness."

The recalled beans were distributed nationwide in retail stores. This recall was initiated after the firm had received consumer and customer complaints regarding failure of the hermetic seal.

If you purchased any beans that are affected by this recall, you should either discard them or return them to the point of purchase for a refund.

Anyone concerned about a potential food poisoning illness from recalled black beans should contact their healthcare provider immediately.

This recall began on April 22, 2021.
