Wisconsin Company Recalls Green Beans In Kentucky Stores

MANITOWOC, Wis. (AP) - A Wisconsin company is voluntarily recalling 14-and-a-half-ounce cans of French Style Green Beans that were canned under various labels, because of suspected possible food poisoning bacteria. Some of the labels are sold in Kentucky stores and supermarkets.

Manitowoc-based Lakeside Foods recalled 15-thousand cases. 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.

The affected beans were sold 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 Canada, and 19 states, including Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Missouri, Tennessee, Virginia, Wisconsin.

The codes involved are: EAA5247, EAA5257, EAA5267, EAA5277,
EAB5247, EAB5257, ECA5207, ECA5217, ECA5227, ECA5297, ECB5207,ECB5217, ECB5227, ECB5307.
