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

0

Randall Foods Inc. is recalling all lots of its Randall-brand beans because of manufacturing deviations that may pose a potential health risk. The recall 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 foodborne illness; however, there have been no illnesses reported.”

The product is sold in 48-ounce, 24-ounce, and 15.4-ounce glass jars with tan labels with “Randall” at the label top.    

Approximately 1.6 million cases of affected products were distributed between March 1, 2019 and May 15, 2021 at retail locations in the following states: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Iowa, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Carolina, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, 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.

Consumers can use the following label information to determine whether they have the recalled beans:
