PORK AND BEANS

Campbell Soup Company sells more than 100 million cans of pork and beans a year.

Commercially canned pork and beans were first sold in the 1880's, but did not become very popular until H.J. Heinz came out with their version in 1895.

Indianapolis grocer Gilbert Van Camp discovered his customers enjoyed an old family recipe for pork and beans in tomato sauce.  He opened up a canning company and Van Camp's Pork and Beans became an American classic
 

Why is it so hard to find the pork in commercially canned Pork and Beans?
