Bumble Bee issues recall of canned tuna that could lead to death if eaten

Bumble Bee issues recall of canned tuna that could lead to death if eaten

Quote:
Bumble Bee Foods has announced a voluntarily recall of canned Chunk Light tuna.

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.

That's a little scary. We've been buying Costco tuna. It comes in a 7 ounce can and it's fine.

I've been buying Kroger brand tuna in 12-ounce cans. Just made tuna salad for lunch yesterday. We're both still here!

We use Starkist in a pouch.

Good to know about the Bumble Bee.

Glad you did... I believe that 'just in case' is good in a forum family...

Good to know GG.
I checked my pantry and found a can of Bumble Bee chopped Clams, checked the upc just to be certain, it's okey-dokey.
Then I have 2 cans of Coral Chunk Light Tuna from Hawaii, prcessed by Bumble Bee, checked that too, you're good.
The last can of tuna that I found WAY in the back was Chicken of the sea solid white albacore in water, so all is well in our house, thanks again GG.
