Bush Brothers & Company announced a voluntary recall Tuesday of select 28 ounce cans of Bush’s Brown Sugar Hickory Baked Beans, Country Style Baked Beans and Original Baked Beans because of potentially defective side seams on the cans.
The recall was initiated after internal quality assurance checks identified the issue, the company said. Subsequent investigations indicated a temporary quality issue from one of the company’s can suppliers, according to a news release. The company says the problem was corrected and no other product is affected.
“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,” said Drew Everett, the company’s chairman. “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.
