Tri-Union Seafoods LLC recalled its 5-ounce Chicken of the Sea brand with chunk white albacore tuna in water sold in single cans between Feb. 4 and Feb. 27, 2013.
Bumble Bee Foods issued a recall for its 5-ounce Chunk White Albacore and Chunk Light Tuna products, also for cans with seals that do not meet standards. The Bumble Bee products were distributed for retail sale nationwide between Jan. 17 and February 28, 2013.
“As soon as we discovered the issue, we took immediate steps to issue this voluntary recall by alerting our customers who received the product and by asking them to remove it from store shelves,” said Shue Wing Chan, President of Tri-Union Seafoods.
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.”
