The meats involved in this scandal were produced on July 10, 11, 12, and 13 of 2016. The firm has not received test results for Listeria in its products. However, the recurring Listeria species issues at the firm and is removing the products as a precautionary measure.
Beans Recalled in Minnesota
Faribault Foods of Faribault, Minnesota is voluntarily recalling some 15-ounce cans of No-Salt-Added Black Beans because they may contain plastic and/or metal pieces. So far, no one has had serious injuries or adverse reactions to the products. The company thinks that the source of the plastic and/or metal was an ink pen that entered the product stream.
