Bumble Bee Foods, LLC, is expanding a nationwide voluntary recall on specific codes of 5-ounce Chunk White Albacore and Chunk Light Tuna products.
The recall has been issued 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.
The company's final assessment of all products affected with the recall include the following products with "best by" and code dates:
