Bumble Bee Tuna Recalled Because Of Problem With Seals
Bumble Bee Foods is voluntarily recalling five-ounce cans of Chunk White Albacore and Chunk Light Tuna because of a problem with the cans’ seals.
In a statement about the voluntary recall both the company and the Food and Drug Administration say that the products did “not meet the company’s standards for seal tightness.” Loose seals can lead to bacterial contamination, which can cause sickness and food poisoning.
No illnesses have been reported but the company is recalling the products just to be safe. Yesterday cans distributed between January 17, 2013 and February 27, 2013 were recalled. Today the recall is being expanded to include cans distributed through March 6, 2013.
