La Preferida indicates about 420 of its 29-ounce cans of pinto beans may not have been fully processed. As a result, contents could be contaminated by spoilage organisms or pathogens and could lead to illness if consumed.

According to the company, no illnesses have been reported by consumers.

La Preferida says the pintos beans were distributed for retail sale nationwide from Jan. 7 through Feb. 6.

The cans are coded: PINTO LP, BEST BY 01/03/2015, "Time" 3003.

La Preferida says the product with the code should be returned to local retailers for a refund.
