The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has announced a canned tuna fish recall on March 6. Bumble Bee LLC. has recalled a variety of Chunk White Albacore and Chunk Light Tuna products because they did not meet the company’s standards to quality seal tightness.
The 5-ounce affected fish were distributed nationwide to retailers between Jan. 17-Feb. 28.
According to the tuna company, there is a high chance that food spoilage will result when organisms or pathogens find their way into the finished product as a result of loose seals or seams.
Consumers who have purchased any of the affected Bumble Bee canned tuna fish should dispose of the entire product and avoid consumption.
The list of specific UPC numbers and Can Lot codes are extensive; Bumble Bee is working with all their retailers in efforts to remove every can off the shelves and out of consumer’s reach.
No illness or complaints have been reported as a result of this recall to date.
For any questions or concerns pertaining to this recall, Bumble Bee Consumer Affairs is available 24 hours a day at 800-800-8572.
To ensure that consumers do not have any of the recalled Bumble Bee tuna products, the entire recall list is available at the FDA website.
