Is nothing safe anymore? Bumble Bee Foods, based in San Diego, Calif., has recalled some of its 5-ounce canned tuna and white albacore thanks to some canning problems, the AP reports.
According to the report, the company is voluntarily recalling its cans after discovering that some of the cans' seals may not be tight enough to keep the fish safe, meaning pathogens could get in, spoil the fish, and sicken an eater. Lovely.
Luckily, there haven't been any reports of illnesses, but the recall affects products distributed between Jan. 17 and Feb. 28, with "best by" dates from Jan. 16, 2016 to Jan. 18, 2016. "Due to can integrity concerns, our top priority at this time is to remove these recalled products from distribution as soon as possible," a representative said. "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."
