*UPDATE: This recall is from 2016 and involves tuna that expires in 2019. This is not a new recall.*
SAN DIEGO, CA (WFLA) – Bumble Bee Foods announced a voluntarily recall of canned Chunk Light tuna in March of 2016.
There are a total of 31,579 cases that are included in the recall which were produced in February 2016 and distributed nationally.
The recall affects 3 specific UPC codes (8660000020, 8660000021, 8660000736) of canned Chunk Light tuna. They’ve been recalled after the company says process deviations occurred in a co-pack facility not owned or operated by Bumble Bee, which could result in contamination by spoilage organisms or pathogens, which could lead to life-threatening illness if consumed.
No illnesses have been reported to date.
The products subject to this recall are marked with a can code that starts with a “T” (example: TOA2BSCAFB) and have the following “best by” dates:
