Bumble Bee Foods LLC announced on Thursday the voluntary recall of three specific UPC codes of canned chunk light tuna because of deviations in the sterilization process. This is a nationwide recall.
The sterilization deviations occurred at a co-pack facility not owned or operated by Bumble Bee Foods. The issue was discovered by the co-packer facility during a routine quality audit.
According to the FDA, these deviations were part of the commercial sterilization process and could result in contamination by spoilage organisms or pathogens, which could lead to life-threatening illness if consumed.
According to a statement on the Bumble Bee Foods web page, the voluntary nationwide recall covers 31,579 cases of the products produced in February 2016. Bumble Bee is working closely with the co-packer and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to expedite the removal of the recalled products from store shelves.
