Bush’s Baked Beans announces voluntary recall

Bush Brothers & Company announced on Saturday that it is voluntarily recalling certain 28 ounce cans of Brown Sugar Hickory Baked Beans, Country Style Baked Beans, and Original Baked Beans.

The recall comes after an internal quality assurance check identified a potentially defective side seam on the cans.

Later investigations indicated that the problem stemmed from a quality issue from one of the company’s can suppliers. The problem has since been corrected and no other products were affected, the company said.

To date, the issue has caused no injuries or illnesses. However, consumers are urged to dispose of the affected products immediately, even if the beans do not appear to be spoiled.

The affected products, with their listed case and container lot codes and UPC numbers are:
