We have another food recall today: Bush Brothers & Co has announced a voluntary recall of Bush’s baked beans.
On Saturday, the company said it would be recalling all 28-oz cans of Bush’s Best Brown Sugar Hickory Baked Beans, Bush’s Country Style Beans, and Bush’s Original Baked Beans. Apparently, the threat, though, is a defective side seam on the cans.
And in a time of massive listeria recalls, this one seems slightly less concerning. Internal quality assurance checks at Bush Brothers is what led to the voluntary recall; one that seems a bit on the safer side after months and months of listeria concerns throughout the food industry.
According to the company, here are the specifics on the exact products Bush Brothers & Co is recalling:
- BUSH’S BEST® BROWN SUGAR HICKORY BAKED BEANS 28 ounce with UPC of 0 39400 01977 0 and Lot Codes 6097S GF and 6097P GF with Best By date of Jun 2019
- BUSH’S BEST COUNTRY STYLE BAKED BEANS 28 ounce with UPC of 0 39400 01974 9 and Lot Codes 6077S RR, 6077P RR, 6087S RR, 6087P RR with the Best By date of Jun 2019
- BUSH’S BEST ORIGINAL BAKED BEANS 28 ounce with UPC of 0 39400 01614 4 and Lot Codes 6057S LC and 6057P LC with the Best By date of Jun 2019
The company said that this recall effects only the products listed as the issue has already been resolved. Fortunately, the company has also reported that no illness or otherwise adverse effects have been filed by consumers in connection with the products listed in this voluntary recall.
