The Consumer Affairs Commission is asking consumers to be on the alert for Grace Baked Beans produced at its Grace Food Processors Canning Division with the listed batch numbers below.

The company has informed the media of the risk of “adverse consequences if consumed” and the CAC is reiterating this RECALL as an extra precaution as this food item is consumed mostly by children.

The National Agricultural Health and Food Safety Coordinating Committee, of which the CAC is a member, is mandated to manage the food safety issues and will be doing its checks in collaboration with GKF on this voluntary recall.  The CAC is awaiting the details related to the “swelling of the cans” as well as the determinant which Grace Kennedy used to conclude the risk levels to consumers which may cause “adverse consequences if consumed”.

The CAC is appealing to families to check the labels and the Batch numbers to ensure that none of the affected cans are not fed to their children. Many consumers may have missed the story and so we are asking the media to reiterate this alert in print, electronic and across social media.

Grace Baked Beans is a common staple among children and in some institutions. Consumers must return these batch numbers to the point of purchase for a full refund while the responsible regulatory food safety agencies carry out their investigations. 

The recall affects the 300 gram cans with the following can codes:
