Tuna Fish Recall Expanded

Bumble Bee has increased its voluntary recall to include more tuna fish cans. Check our list against your pantry to see if you have any of the cans being recalled.

A day after voluntarily recalling cans of tuna fish, Bumble Bee Foods expanded the recall to include more cans, according to the FDA.

The reason for the recall is loose seals or seams that could result in product contamination “by spoilage organisms or pathogens and lead to illness if consumed.” The problem was linked to a manufacturing line issue, which has been corrected, said the FDA.

The recalled tuna fish was distributed for retail sale between Jan. 17 and March 6, 2013.

Bumble Bee Foods SVP of Technical Services and Corporate Quality Assurance Steve Mavity, said: "Due to can integrity concerns, our top priority at this time is to remove these recalled products from distribution as soon as possible. We are working closely with our sales team and with retailers to help expedite the recall.

"We must assure our consumers and retailers of a safe and quality product so we very much appreciate everyone's part in disposing of the products with the specific codes indicated. We're voluntarily recalling products to ensure the highest margin of safety and quality," Mavity said.

Bumble Bee is asking consumers who purchased the recalled product to discard the cans. They should contact the 24-hour dedicated recall line at 888-820-1947 for any questions or to receive reimbursement.

The expanded recall includes the following information:

Not to mention the linings of the tuna cans are made with BPA, a proven carcinogen. If a tuna can, or any can, doesn't say "BPA free," let the buyer beware.

Belay that. Not proven carcinogenic, not yet, but linked to cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and erectile dysfunction.

Consumer products displayed to b sold to the public should always b evaluated bfore selling so not professional
