Albertson's French Style Green Bean Recall

The City of Lubbock Health Department has received an alert from the CDC Epidemic Information Exchange recalling Albertson's labeled French Style Green Beans. The 14.5 ounce cans may have been underprocessed, and some cans may have leaked.  

While no illnesses have been reported theses cans have the potential to be contaminated with harmful organisms including Clostridium botulinum. No botulinum toxin has been found in any cans tested to date, however the company continues to test out of an abundance of caution.

Botulism, a potentially fatal form of food poisoning, can cause the following symptoms:

  • general weakness,
  • dizziness,
  • double vision and
  • trouble speaking or swallowing,
  • difficulty breathing,
  • muscle weakness,
  • abdominal distention,
  • and constipation.

Persons experiencing these problems should seek immediate medical attention.

Consumers are also warned not to use the product even if it does not look or smell spoiled. Symptoms usually occur from six hours to 10 days after eating contaminated food.

Lakeside is asking consumers who have cans of the French Style Green Beans with the following in the top line of the can code to return them unopened to the place of purchase.

  • EAA5247
  • EAA5257
  • EAA5267
  • EAA5277
  • EAB5247
  • EAB5257
  • ECA5207
  • ECA5217
  • ECA5227
  • ECA5297
  • ECB5207
  • ECB5217
  • ECB5227
  • ECB5307

No botulism cases have been identified from the Lakeside product; however, this recall follows the Castleberry hot dog chili sauce recall implicated in 4 botulism cases (2 in Abernathy, Texas, and 2 in Indiana) in July 2007.

Lakeside Foods voluntarily recalled the products after learning of a potential problem during routine internal monitoring. Lakeside said it is working closely with the Food & Drug Administration and has identified and corrected the condition that resulted in its decision to voluntarily recall the cans in question. No other Lakeside products are affected by this recall.

Consumers with questions may contact the company at (800) 466-3834 Ext. 4090.

Code and label information will also be posted on their web site (click here).
