Trudy,
I had heard that botulism in commercially canned products hadn't been a problem in over 30 years.  I watched a TV show the other day called "How It's Made." They did canned corn. They said it's boiled for 5-6 minutes.  The FDA and CDC websites say boil for 10 minutes.  Are the corporations saving on their utility bills and risking the "consumers?"  I wonder..............

Institutional sized cans of garbanzo beans (chick peas) and green beans...

This is the part that gets to me...

"New Era distributed the beans nationwide over the last five years."

Why is this discovered so long after the fact?

Thanks for the post.

Buy local.  Buy organic.
If you ate today, thank a farmer, hopefully a small, local farmer.

Trudy thx so much for the heads up. Just bought a can of vegeratian Organic garbanzo beans few weeks ago as read you can make a paste to get rid of age spots. Manufactured for distribution by The Hain Celestial Group, Inc. Melville, NY Certified Organic by Quality Assurance International (QAI) Now should I return this can as its not the industrial size, only 15 oz. w/best by date of April 17, 2009. Afraid to open it now so probably will take it back, sheesh without all the wonderful people who have their eyes and ears open at Itchmo we'd all have more problems besides what we already deal with.

JJ -
     I think your beans will be fine.  Not the can size and not the manufacturer or distributor that has the recall.

Mandy you may be right since they are from a different company. Only thing with that is when the last canned recall happened it affected a few different brands-probably all canned at same place? I do not recall if they were or not.

What is scary is that so many plants process food for other companies/private labels.  From some past recalls, they tend to start small and then expand to other brands, sizes, dates after tracing back production dates & what was processed before & after the "bad" lots & the other companies/labels deciding to "voluntarily" recall products...  I'm not saying that is the case here at all... just bringing up what has sometimes happened in the past.  I remember the mela-chickens & the massive ground beef recall... more and more states were involved as time went on.  JJ, I think you're being prudent to question your can of beans, even though the brand/sizes are different. 

I just bought some small cans of organic garbanzos as well... so I'll wait a while.  I also bought some bulk uncooked garbanzos, which I can use.

purringfur thx for that reminder to be prudent. Since I err on the side of safety (when my dog just plain out refuses to eat a food she had been eating alright for the past several months, etc) I just decide to take it back. So very glad Trudy posted this about the beans to begin with and thankfully I had not opened the can yet. Will wait and see what else is added to that recall of the canned beans also.
