Rarely does a food recall not start with a problem or potential problem with the food. But Bush Brothers & Company hasn’t enacted a recall of three styles of baked beans because of the beans.
It’s because of the cans.
The company’s recall notice says there might be defective side seams on some 28-ounce cans of Bush’s Best Original Baked Beans, Bush’s Best Country Style Baked Beans and Bush’s Best Brown Sugar Hickory Baked Beans. Anyone who has cans in the below lot numbers, Bush’s says, should toss them “even if the beans do not look or smell spoiled.”
The lot numbers are:
▪ Bush’s Best Brown Sugar Hickory, case lot code (HIC) 001977 12-28 oz. 6097V Best by June 2019; container lot codes 6097S GF and 6097P GF Best By June 2019.
