RECALL: Bumble Bee warns of risk of spoilage in more than 31,000 cases of canned Chunk Light tuna
Bumble Bee Foods is recalling more than 31,000 cases of canned Chunk Light tuna because they may have spoiled.
The recall applies to three specific UPC codes of canned Chunk Light tuna. The problem developed because of some deviations in the commercial sterilization process at a facility that packs the product but is not owned by the company. Bumble Bee says the deviations could result in contamination and spoilage and lead to life-threatening illness if consumed.
It noted that no reports of illness have been associated with the products to date.
The affected codes and best-by dates in question can be found on the Bumble Bee website.
Anyone who bought one of the recalled tuna cans should throw them away.
Consumers looking for more information on reimbursement or who have questions about the recall may contact Bumble Bee at (888) 820-1947 between the hours of 9am and 6pm EST seven days a week.
