A Wisconsin company is voluntarily recalling 14.5-ounce cans of French Style Green Beans that were canned under various labels and distributed in 20 states.
Manitowoc-based Lakeside Foods said it recalled 15,000 cases after learning of a potential problem during routine internal monitoring. The Food and Drug Administration says the product may not have been processed adequately to eliminate the potential for botulism toxin.
No illnesses have been reported and no botulism has been found so far, but the company says it will continue to test cans.
The affected beans were sold nationwide under: Albertson's, Happy Harvest, Best Choice, Food Club, Bogopa, Valu Time, Hill Country Fare, HEB, Laura Lynn, Kroger, No Name, North Pride, Shop N Save, Shoppers Valu, Schnucks, Cub Foods, Dierbergs, Flavorite, IGA, Best Choice and Thrifty Maid.
The product was distributed to: Alabama, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, North Carolina, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, VIRGINIA, and Wisconsin.
