Warning: Major Household Food Item May be Life-threatening, if Consumed

Due to a deviation in how the food was processed in a co-pack facility not directly owned or operated by the company, Bumble Bee has issued a voluntary recall of 31,579 cases of its canned Chunk Light tuna.

Because of the mishandling, reported ABC-affiliated news agency Wate.com, it is possible that contamination by spoilage organisms or pathogens could have occurred, which could lead to life-threatening illness if consumed.

The cans were produced in February 2016 and were distributed nationally.

It affects 3 specific UPC codes: 8660000020, 8660000021, and 8660000736

No illnesses have yet been reported.

Bumble Bee is working closely with the FDA and the co-packer to remove the items from shelves.

The company urges consumers to throw away the recalled product.
