This is from the Bush Beans website:
Because the canning process preserves our products, it is not necessary to freeze the product for long-term storage. If frozen for a short period of time, there should not be a significant change in the flavor, but the character of the beans will most likely be altered. After being frozen, the beans tend to be much softer than normal. If you do decide to freeze our products, we do not recommend freezing for an extended period of time or freezing in the can. After prolonged freezing, beans may develop a "freezer burn" taste.
The best way to store the product after opening the can is in the refrigerator in an airtight container. This preserves the beans for 2-3 days – we do not recommend refrigerating the beans in the can.
