ABC40 Alert: Canned Tuna Recall

tunaWEB

SAN DIEGO (AP/WGGB) — Bumble Bee Foods LLC and Tri-Union Seafoods LLC are recalling some 5-ounce canned tuna because of a risk the fish could spoil.

The FDA said Wednesday that some cans’ seals may not be tight enough. Loose seals could let in pathogens and spoil the tuna, sickening an eater.

Tri-Union Seafoods is the maker of Chicken of the Sea canned tuna.

“The health and safety of our consumers is paramount. As soon as we discovered the issue, we took immediate steps to issue this voluntary recall by alerting our customers who received the product and by asking them to remove it from store shelves,” said Shue Wing Chan, President of Tri-Union Seafoods.

There have been no reports so far of any related illnesses.

The Bumble Bee cans were distributed to retailers across the country between Jan. 17 and Feb. 28 and have “best by” rates that range from Jan. 16, 2016 through Jan. 18, 2016.

The products subject to the recall include Bumble Bee brand and Brunswick brand 5-ounce cans of chunk white albacore in water and chunk light tuna in water and vegetable oil.

Consumers who think they may have purchased one of the recalled products can contact Bumble Bee to get their money back and throw away the canned tuna.
