Bumble Bee recalls 2.4 million cans of tuna

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.
