Bumble Bee Foods, LLC, has issued a voluntary recall on specific codes of 5-ounce Chunk White Albacore and Chunk Light Tuna products. Company officials said in a press release they issued the recall because the products do not meet the company's standards for seal tightness.
Loose seals, or seams could result in product contamination by spoilage organisms or pathogens. If consumed, illness could result. Company officials stressed they had no reports to date of any illness associated with these products. The products in question went out for nationwide distribution between January 17, 2013, and February 28, 2013.
Consumers who purchased the recalled products should dispose of the product in the garbage.
