Chicken of the Sea Tuna Recall

Makers of Bumblebee Tuna, Tri-Union Seafoods LLC are making a voluntary recall to their 5-ounce cans of chunk white albacore tuna in water.

Full BumbleBee Tuna recall list is below.

The Bumblebee Tuna recall is due to loose lids that do not meet the standard for seam quality. The FDA stated on their recall website that, “Cans that do not meet seam standards could result in product contamination by spoilage organisms or by pathogens, which could lead to illness if consumed. There have been no reported illnesses to date, and Tri-Union Seafoods is issuing this voluntary recall to ensure the highest margin of safety and quality.”

Steve Mavity, Bumble Bee Foods senior vice president of technical services and corporate quality assurance said in a statement, “Due to can integrity concerns, our top priority at this time is to remove these recalled products from distribution as soon as possible. We must assure our consumers and retailers of a safe and quality product so we very much appreciate everyone’s part in disposing of the products with the specific codes indicated.”

The specific product being recalled is Chicken of the Sea Brand 5-ounce chunk white albacore tuna in water sold at retail nationwide in single cans between February 4, 2013 and February 27, 2013.

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, in a statement.
