Bush Brothers & Company is voluntarily recalling certain 28 ounce cans of Brown Sugar Hickory Baked Beans, Country Style Baked Beans, and Original Baked Beans because cans may have defective side seams. These side seam defects may affect can integrity and may cause the cans to leak or allow for harmful bacteria to grow inside the product. Bush Brothers found the issue as part of their quality control inspections.
The recalled products were distributed nationwide in retail stores.
This event only affects the flavors and lot codes below. Lot codes are printed on the bottom of the can.

You should not use these products even if the beans do not look or smell spoiled.
The recall was initiated after product leakage from the side seams of cans of the above product was detected. Subsequent investigation indicated the problem was caused by a temporary quality issue from Bush’s can supplier. The problem was corrected and no other product is affected.
