Having a barbecue this week? Double check those cans of Bush's baked beans since the company has recalled several products because of potentially defective side seams in the packaging.

On Saturday, the company recalled 28-ounce cans of brown sugar hickory baked beans, country-style baked beans and original baked beans.

The products affected are:

  • 28-ounce Bush’s Best Brown Sugar Hickory with case UPC of 003940001977
  • 28-ounce Bush’s Best Country Style  with case UPC of 0003940091974 and 00340001974
  • 28-ounce Bush’s Best Original with case UPC of 003940091614 and 003940001614.

All the recalled cans have a “best by” date of June 2019. 

This recall was initiated after their internal quality assurance checks identified the issue. Subsequent investigations indicated a temporary quality issue from one of their can suppliers. The problem was corrected and no other product has been affected.

"As a fourth generation family owned business, we are guided by our values of integrity, caring,
responsibility, and trust and we apologize for any inconvenience or concern this situation may cause," the company said in a statement
