Bush Brothers & Company is voluntarily recalling certain baked beans products because the cans could be defective, the company announced.
Bush Brothers recalled certain 28-ounce cans of Brown Sugar Hickory Baked Beans, Country Style Baked Beans and Original Baked Beans because the cans could have defective side seams. The side seam defects can cause the cans to leak or allow for harmful bacteria to grow inside the product, according to a recall notice.
Consumers should not use or eat the product if the beans look or smell spoiled. No illnesses have been reported in connection with the product. An investigation found the problem was caused by a temporary quality issue from Bush’s can supplier. The problem was corrected and no other product were affected.
The recalled products were distributed nationwide in retail stores. The impacted products include:
— BUSH’S BEST® BROWN SUGAR HICKORY BAKED BEANS 28 ounce with UPC of 0 39400 01977 0 and Lot Codes 6097S GF and 6097P GF with Best By date of Jun 2019
