Posted March 7, 2013, 6 a.m. Bumble Bee Foods has issued a voluntary recall of 5-ounce Chunk White Albacore and Chunk Light Tuna because of loose seals on the cans, according to the Food and Drug Administration.
“Loose seals or seams could result in product contamination by spoilage organisms or pathogens and lead to illness if consumed,” the FDA says. No illnesses have been reported, but the nasty possibilities are alarming.
The recalled products were sold in 48-, 24- and 6-can cases. Go here for the complete list. They were distributed for retail sale nationwide between Jan. 17, 2013 and Feb. 28, 2013. And click King Arthur Recalls Flour Containing Blue Plastic Balls
