If you’ve bought a big can of Bush’s baked beans lately, you might want to check to see if it’s being recalled. Three varieties of 28-ounce cans of Bush’s beans — Brown Sugar Hickory, Country Style, and Original — are subject to a voluntary recall due to “potentially defective side seams on the cans,” the company’s chairman of the board, Drew Everett, said in a release.
No illnesses or any other negative consequences have been reported, and the problem was quickly identified and corrected, but the company is urging consumers to dispose of the cans immediately even if they don’t look or smell spoiled. All affected cans are 28-ounces and have a “Best By” date of June 2019, and the UPC and LOT codes are as follows:
Brown Sugar Hickory: UPC: 00039400019770; LOT: 6097S GF and 6097P GF
Country Style: 00039400019749; LOT: 6077S RR, 6077P RR, 6087S RR, 6087P RR
Original: 00039400016144; LOT: 6057S LC and 6057P LC
The cans are in the process of being removed from grocery store shelves. For more information, you can call Bush’s consumer relations department at 1-800-590-3797.
