Andrew Ho, senior general manager, Manufacturing stated: “Through routine internal checks the company identified irregularities with the product, manifested in the swelling of some cans. We have therefore decided to recall the specific batches mentioned to protect our consumers and are also taking all necessary steps to address the irregularities.”
He explained that there is a remote probability that the batches identified may cause adverse health consequences.
GraceKennedy assured all consumers that their safety is paramount, and that the recall does not affect any other batches of the Grace Baked Beans products outside of the ones identified in this release.
“Providing safe, high quality products to our consumers remains our number one priority,” said Ho.
