FDA has alerted consumers and food service operators in eleven states that canned green beans produced by the New Era Canning Company may be contaminated with Clostridium botulinum. Under no circumstances should the contents of these cans be eaten, even if they look and smell completely normal.
The 6 lb. 5 oz. cans are labelled as "GFS Fancy Blue Lake Cut Green Beans", and carry the lot number 19H7FL. The product was sold in GFS Marketplace stores in Tennessee, Indiana and Kentucky.
Clostridium botulinum toxin can be fatal. Do not take any chances with this product.
