French Style Green Beans in 14.5 ounce cans and sold under several different brand names are being recalled by manufacturer Lakeside Foods of Manitowoc, WI, over concerns that incorrect canning procedures could leave the contents vulnerable to infection by Clostridium botulinum.
According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), no reports of Botulism have yet surfaced, and the company is recalling the product out of an abundance of caution. The recall affects 20 states, including Virginia. No other Lakeside products are affected by the recall. Consumers who have purchased the product are instructed to contact the company at (800) 466-3844, ext. 4090 for further instructions.
