Bush’s Baked Beans Recalled Due To Defective Cans

Before you crack open a can of baked beans for your next backyard cookout, you should check to make sure they’re not included in a recent recall by Bush’s prompted by defective cans.

Bush’s announced a voluntary recall [PDF] over the weekend of certain 28-ounce cans of Bush’s Brown Sugar Hickory Baked Beans, Country Style Baked Beans, and Original Baked Beans.

The problem is potentially defective side seams on the cans that were discovered as part of internal quality assurance checks. The company’s investigation found a temporary quality issue from one of its can suppliers, which now been corrected. No other products are affected.

There have been no reports of illnesses or other adverse consequences connected to the recall, but you should still throw out any affected products you may have — even if the beans don’t smell or look spoiled.
