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 and sold in 20 states, including North Carolina.

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

Goodness! Less than a week ago I stood there looking at them trying to decide of I wanted the French cut or regular (I love both). I finally decided on the regular cut, thinking next time I would get the French cut.

Fortunately we haven't gotten any french cut beans in quite a while.

Just goes to prove that no food supply is truely safe unless you grow/raise it and process it yourself.
