Bush Brothers & Co. recalls baked beans cans

Bush Brothers & Company is voluntarily recalling certain baked beans products because the cans could be defective, the company announced.

Bush Brothers recalled certain 28-ounce cans of Brown Sugar Hickory Baked Beans, Country Style Baked Beans and Original Baked Beans because the cans could have defective side seams. The side seam defects can cause the cans to leak or allow for harmful bacteria to grow inside the product, according to a recall notice.
