Bumble Bee Tuna Recall

From the Wall Street Journal

Bumble Bee Foods LLC is expanding a voluntary recall on some of its five-ounce Chunk White Albacore and Chunk Light Tuna products because these don’t meet the company’s standards for seal tightness.

Bumble Bee noted that loose seals or seams could result in product contamination by spoilage organisms or pathogens and lead to illness if consumed.

There have been no reports to date of any illness associated with these products.

Bumble Bee initially announced the voluntary recall on Wednesday, after identifying an issue on a manufacturing line, which the company on Friday said has been corrected.

Products that are being recalled include Brunswick Brand 5oz Chunk Light Tuna in Water, Bumble Bee Brand 5oz Chunk Light Tuna in Vegetable Oil and Bumble Bee Brand 5oz Chunk White Albacore in Water.

The products were distributed for retail sale nationwide between Jan. 17 and March 6 of this year. They have ‘best by’ codes ranging from Jan. 14, 2016 to Jan. 18, 2016.

“Due to can integrity concerns, our top priority at this time is to remove these recalled products from distribution as soon as possible,” Senior Vice President of Technical Services and Corporate Quality Assurance Steve Mavity said. “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.”

Bumble Bee said consumers who have bought any of the recalled products should dispose of them in the garbage. Consumers with questions can call a recall line at (888) 820-1947.
