San Diego-based company Bumble Bee Foods has issued a voluntary recall on specific codes of five-ounce tuna products recently sold to consumers, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration confirms.
The recall includes specific codes of Chunk White Albacore and Chunk Light Tuna cans sold to consumers nationwide between Jan. 17 and Feb. 28, 2013.
The FDA says the company is recalling the products due to loose seals on the cans. Loose seals and seams on food products could result in contamination by organisms or pathogens, and could lead to illness if consumed.
