(March 17, 2016) – Bumble Bee Foods has issued a voluntary recall of over 31,579 cases of canned tuna over possible contamination that could lead to life-threatening illness.

According to Bumble Bee, three specific UPC codes of canned Chunk Light tuna are involved in the recall due to process deviations that occurred in a co-pack facility not owned or operated by Bumble Bee. These deviations were part of the commercial sterilization process and could result in contamination by spoilage organisms or pathogens, which could lead to life-threatening illness if consumed.

The company says at this time, there have been no reports of illness associated with these products.

The cases in the recall were produced in February 2016 and distributed nationally. The products subject to this recall are marked with a can code that starts with a “T” (example: TOA2BSCAFB).
