La Preferida Inc. is voluntarily recalling 56,808 29-ounce cans of La Preferida Whole Pinto Beans, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced Thursday.

"The manufacturer’s preliminary inspection indicates 420 cans may not have been fully processed, which could result in product contamination by spoilage organisms or by pathogens, which could lead to illness if consumed," the FDA said. "To date, there have been no reported injuries or adverse events associated with the consumption of this product."

The top of the cans bear the following printing: "Pinto LP, Best by 01/03/2015 'Time' 3003."

The canned beans were distributed to retail stores nationwide from Jan. 7 to Feb. 6.
