Bush’s Baked Beans Issues Recall-Outdated!

Summary of eRumor:

Bush’s Baked Beans has recalled three kinds of beans because of defective cans.

The Truth:

Bushes Baked Beans issued a product recall in July 2017, and it was re-reported as breaking news in June 2018. There weren’t any active recalls or concerns at that time.
Bush Brothers & Co. issued a recall on July 25, 2017, of 28-ounce cans of Brown Sugar Hickory Baked Beans, Country Style Baked Beans and Original Baked Beans. The reason for the recall was “defective side seams.” It only impacted certain cans with best-by dates of “Jun 2019.” Even then, only certain product lot numbers were impacted. Check the press release for more information.
As the summer grilling season kicked into high gear in June 2018, the recall notice re-circulated on social media. Many mistook it for a recent recall and warned people to throw out cans of Bushes Baked Beans.

A Bushes Baked Beans recall from 2017 was re-reported as breaking news in mid-2018.

The FDA closed the product recall on April 2018. However, customers who find cans with matching best-by dates and lot numbers are encouraged to call 1-800-590-3797, or to contact the company here.
