Over 31,000 Cases of Canned Tuna Recalled Due to Possible Health Risk
Before you whip up a batch of avocado-tuna salad for lunch, go ahead and check the can: San Diego-based company Bumble Bee Foods has recalled over 31,000 cases of Bumble Bee Chunk Light Tuna due to process deviations that might have resulted in “contamination by spoilage organisms or pathogens,” according to a press release from the company.
The cans affected by the recall — 5-ounce Bumble Bee Chunk Light Tuna in Water, 5-ounce Bumble Bee Chunk Light Tuna in Oil, and 4-packs of 5-ounce Bumble Bee Chunk Light Tuna in Water — were produced this past February and distributed across the country. You can find the UPC codes and “best by” dates to check for here.
If you have one of the cans, the company advises customers to throw them away.
