Canning lid fail

OhioLadyBug | Mar 18, 201901:32 AM     5

I’m pretty new to canning (2 years). A couple months ago I PC’d quarts and jars of pinto beans with bacon and onions. I cooked at the right times 60/90 at 10 lbs. They all sealed with a ping, ping, etc. Today I was checking my jars and 2 quarts and 1 pint came right open with just my fingers. I was so frustrated because I had to dump them UGH! I’ve never had this happen before and am not sure what I did wrong. Can anyone help? Oh and I used new Ball lids. Thanks!
