Northwest Iowa — A West Des Moines based grocery chain, with stores across northwest Iowa, has issued a voluntary recall on one of the products they sell.
According to Hy-Vee, Inc., a limited quantity of Hy-Vee No-Salt-Added Black Beans, are being recalled due to the potential presence of plastic or metal pieces within the product. The grocery giant says the recall is being issued out of an abundance of caution, to protect their customers from a potential choking hazard, which may cause physical injury.
Hy-Vee says the potential for contamination was discovered after Faribault Foods, Inc., Hy-Vee’s supplier, announced it was issuing a recall after one consumer reported finding a partial ink pen in one container. The product was manufactured at the company’s Faribault, Minnesota, facility, which supplies several major retailers across the United States. Faribault Foods, Inc. has determined this to be an isolated incident.
The voluntary recall is limited to 15-ounce cans of Hy-Vee No-Salt-Added Black Beans with the code “Best By 04 APR 2019 258F2 095 16 XXXX” and UPC number of 0075450105190. The product was sold at Hy-Vee stores in Iowa, Illinois, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, South Dakota and Wisconsin between April 22, 2016, and July 18, 2016.
To date, no injuries have been reported in connection with this product, according to Hy-Vee.
