Bush Brothers & Co. has announced a voluntary recall of some cans of Bush’s baked beans.
The company said Saturday it is recalling 28-ounce cans of Bush’s Best Brown Sugar Hickory Baked Beans, Country Style Baked Beans and Original Baked Beans because of potentially defective side seams on cans.
NBC-11 reports the recall was initiated after internal quality assurance checks identified the issue. The temporary quality issue was identified with one of its can suppliers and has since been corrected.
The recalled Bush’s baked beans products are as follows:
- 28-ounce Bush’s Best Brown Sugar Hickory with case UPC of 003940001977.
- 28-ounce Bush’s Best Country Style with case UPC of 0003940091974 and 00340001974.
- 28-ounce Bush’s Best Original with case UPC of 003940091614 and 003940001614.
All the affected products have a best-by date of June 2019.
No other products are affected.
The company said in a statement that no illnesses or other adverse consequences have been reported in connection with the voluntary recall. Bush’s encouraged customers to dispose of the affected products immediately even if the beans do not look or smell spoiled.
“As a fourth-generation family owned business, we are guided by our values of integrity, caring, responsibility, and trust and we apologize for any inconvenience or concern this situation may cause,” the company said in a press release.
Bush’s added that it is working with its retailers to ensure timely removal of affected product from their warehouses and shelves.
