Bumble Bee expanded its voluntary recall to include 51,000 cases of canned tuna yesterday after it was found that some cans' seals may not be tight enough. Loose seals could let in germs and spoil the tuna, sickening an eater.
The cans were distributed to retailers across the country between Jan. 17 and Wednesday and have "best by" rates that range from Jan. 14, 2016 through Jan. 18, 2016. The company originally announced the recall on Wednesday after identifying a problem on a manufacturing line, which has since been corrected.
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 should dispose of the canned tuna and contact Bumble Bee for a refund.
