Bush’s Best recalls beans

WASHINGTON, July 25, 2017 - Bush Brothers & Co. is recalling three flavors of canned baked beans from retailers nationwide after discovering defective side seams in some cans, which could allow the beans to spoil or become contaminated with pathogens.
“This recall was initiated after our internal quality assurance checks identified the issue. Subsequent investigations indicated a temporary quality issue from one of our can suppliers. The problem was corrected and no other product is affected,” according to the July 22 recall notice the company posted on its website.

“It’s important to note that, to date, no illnesses or other adverse consequences have been reported in connection with this voluntary recall; however, we urge you to dispose of these affected products immediately even if the beans do not look or smell spoiled. We are working with our retailers to ensure timely removal of affected product from their warehouses and shelves.”

Three flavors of Bush’s canned baked beans are included in the recall. All beans subject to the recall are in 28-ounce cans. Consumers, retailers and others should check any beans they have on hand to see if they are included in the recall.

Even if cans do not appear to be compromised no one should eat any of the recalled beans because microscopic bacteria and toxins could be present.

See the chart below for the specific information to look for on the cans that will identify the recalled beans.

The company’s consumer relations department is available to answer questions at 800-590-3797, Monday-Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Eastern time.
