Bumble Bee Brand Foods and Tri-union Seafoods, the maker of Chicken of the Sea canned tuna, have voluntarily recalled several canned tuna products because their seals may be faulty.
The nationwide recall of canned tuna fish expanded on Friday to include more products sold under three popular brand names, according to the two San Diego-based companies involved in the recall.
Tri-union Seafoods and Bumble Bee Tuna Brands voluntarily recalled dozens of lots of canned tuna fish after the companies discovered seals on the cans may be faulty, making the food vulnerable to spoilage and contamination which could sicken consumers.
The recall now applies to these 5-ounce cans of chunk white albacore and chunk light tuna products. All the cans have "best by" dates between Jan. 14 and 18, 2016:
There have been no reports yet of consumers getting sick from the recalled tuna, the companies said.
Consumers are being told to throw away the affected cans. Consumers can reach Tri-union Seafoods at this number: 800-597-5898; and Bumble Bee Brands at this number: (800) 800-8572
