Company expands recall of 1.6 million cases of beans from 22 states for processing mistake

0

Randall Foods Inc. of Cincinnati, Ohio has expanded its recall of certain jarred beans under the “Hurst’s” Brand because of manufacturing deviations that may pose a potential health risk. The recall already includes 1.6 million cases of glass jars.

“The manufacturing deviations included a nonfunctioning temperature indicating device raising the possibility that the product was not effectively processed,” according to the Cincinnati, OH, company’s recall notice posted by the Food and Drug Administration. 

Processing at temperatures below a required temperature could create a condition that could lead to premature spoilage or food borne illness.

The product was co-packed and sold in 4- ounce glass jars with yellow labels with “Hurst’s Brand” at the label top. The company shipped 437 cases of affected product  between Nov.7, 2019, and Sept. 28, 2020, for distribution in the following states: Iowa, Illinois, Kentucky, Maryland, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and West Virginia.

There is concern that consumers may have unused portions of the beans in their homes because of the long shelf of the products, which have best-by dates through 2025.
