Several brands of tuna recalled

Posted by: Jane Friedmann under Dangerous products, Whistleblower Updated: March 8, 2013 - 4:28 PM



If you are craving a tuna fix in the near future, check the coding on the can before digging in. Bumble Bee Foods, LLC is recalling some cans of tuna because "the products do not meet the company's standards for seal tightness," according to a recall notice.

In other words, eating the affected tuna would be a bad idea, though there have been no reports of illness so far.

The recall includes specific cans of Bumble Bee and Brunswick brand 5-ounce Chunk White Albacore and Chunk Light Tuna.

Tri-Union Seafoods LLC, is also recalling a limited amount of Chicken of the Sea 5-ounce chunk light tuna for the same production defect.
