Company Announcement

Randall Foods, Inc. of Cincinnati, Ohio is recalling certain jarred beans under the “Hurst’s” Brand because of manufacturing deviations that may pose a potential health risk. The recall includes the following products:

Brand Description UPC Batch/Lot Numbers “Best By” Date
Hurst Glass Jar Fully Cooked Great Northern Beans 48OZ 0 256012 0 TGN19253 9/9/2022

The product was co-packed and sold in 48oz glass jars with yellow labels with “Hurst's Brand” at the label top. Four hundred and thirty-seven (437) cases of affected product were shipped between November 7, 2019 and September 28, 2020 for distribution in the following states: Iowa, Illinois, Kentucky, Maryland, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and West Virginia.

No other Hurst’s Brand products are included in this recall.

The manufacturing deviations included a nonfunctioning temperature indicating device raising the possibility that the product was not effectively processed. Processing at temperatures below a required temperature could create a condition that could lead to premature spoilage or food borne illness; however, there have been no illnesses reported. The company is issuing this voluntary recall as a precaution.

Consumers who have purchased jars of Hurst’s brand beans, with the above Batch/Lot number or “Best By” date should return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions regarding Hurst's Brand product may contact the N.K. Hurst Company at 317-631-7754 or Randall Foods toll free at 1-888-462-2362 or email at recall@randallbeans.com.
