Bumble Bee Foods issues voluntary recall
of 5-ounce tuna due to loose seals
 
 
The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment today announced a nationwide voluntary recall by Bumble Bee Foods, LLC of San Diego, Calif. of specific codes of 5-ounce Chunk White Albacore and Chunk Light Tuna products. The recall has been initiated because the products do not meet the company’s standards for seal tightness.
Although Bumble Bee indicates there have been no reports of illness associated with the recalled products, it is issuing the recall as a precautionary measure. Loose seals or seams could result in product contamination that could lead to illness if consumed. 
The recalled products were sold nationwide through various retail outlets including Target, Walmart and Kmart locations in Colorado. Consumers who may have purchased the recalled tuna are urged to check any cans they have in their cupboards.
The recall affects the following products that were distributed for retail sale nationwide between Jan. 17, 2013, and Feb. 28, 2013.
