Bumble Bee recalls 2.4 million cans of tuna

By Los Angeles Times (MCT)

LAST UPDATED: 06:47 a.m. HST, Mar 13, 2013

Bumble Bee Foods recalled 2.4 million cans of tuna last week because of loose seals, the San Diego-based company said.

The affected products — 5-ounce cans of chunk white albacore and chunk light tuna sold under the Bumble Bee and Brunswick brands — were sold nationwide between Jan. 17 and March 6.

No illnesses have been reported so far, the company said.

The company said it learned Wednesday of a manufacturing line problem that caused the cans to be improperly sealed, which could cause the tuna to spoil and lead to illness if consumed.

The problem has since been corrected, Mavity said in a statement.

Consumers are urged to discard the cans. For information about the recall or reimbursement consumers may call (888) 820-1947. The company posted a complete list and description of cans that are affected online at www.bumblebee.com.

Good for them. Closing down American plants or cutting them back to skeleton crews while the tuna is actually packed by cheap foreign labor. How about the Mexican dude that was cooked in the factory in Santa Fe Srpings last year? Maybe they left the lids ajar to let him breathe. Bachi I tell ya...
