Department of Agriculture and Industries Consumer Food Safety Inspectors are conducting recall effectiveness checks on specific codes of 5-ounce Chunk White Albacore and Chunk Light Tuna products. Yesterday, Bumble Bee Foods, LLC, announced they were expanding a voluntary recall because the products do not meet the company's standards for seal tightness.
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, March 6 after identifying an issue on a manufacturing line, which has been corrected.
