March 7, 2013 — Bumble Bee Foods is recalling some of its tuna because cans might not be sealed tightly.

If you have 5-ounce cans of Bumble Bee or Brunswick Chunk White Albacore or Chunk Light Tuna, the company says you should throw them away.

Bumble Bee says loose seals or seams could allow the tuna to be contaminated, although it has no reports of any illnesses related to the products.

The recalled tuna products are:

  • Brunswick Brand 5-ounce Chunk Light Tuna in Water
  • Bumble Bee Brand 5-ounce Chunk Light Tuna in Water
  • Bumble Bee Brand 5-ounce Chunk Light Tuna in Vegetable Oil
  • Bumble Bee Brand 5-ounce Chunk White Albacore in Water

The tuna was distributed nationwide between Jan. 17, 2013, and Feb. 28, 2013.  It has “best used by dates” of Jan. 16, 2016, to Jan. 18, 2016.

The FDA has the cans’ UPC and lot codes. Bumble Bee can be contacted at (800) 800-8572.
