MORRISTOWN, NJ- Bush Brothers & Company has announced a voluntary recall of certain 28 ounce cans of Brown Sugar Hickory Baked Beans, Country Style Baked Beans and Original Baked Beans due to defective side seams.

The defects in the side seams may affect the integrity of the can and may cause cans to leak or allow for harmful bacteria to grow inside the product, said the company. The recall was initiated after an investigation revealed that the problem resulted from a temporary quality issue from the can's supplier. The problem has since been corrected.

The recalled products were distributed nationwide in retail stores but only affect the flavors and lot codes listed below.
