May 11, 2018 from the CFIA:
illy Espresso Canada, Inc. is recalling illy brand whole coffee beans from the marketplace due to swelling cans that are missing an air valve. Due to a manufacturing flaw, there is the potential that products were packaged without a necessary air valve, and carbon dioxide from degassing beans may accumulate within the coffee can, which could cause the coffee can to expand, creating pressure for the can's lid to suddenly detach with force upon opening. Consumers should not open or use the recalled products described below.
