Two popular tuna brands recalled

Published On: Mar 08 2013 05:46:10 PM CST

       Some popular tuna brands are being recalled.
       'Bumble Bee' and 'Chicken of the Sea' tuna are voluntarily  recalling some cans because they were improperly sealed.
       No illnesses have been reported, the companies say.
       But loose seals or seams could result in product contamination.
       That's according to a statement from Bumble Bee Foods posted by the Food and Drug Administration.

       Tri-Union Seafoods, which makes Chicken of the Sea, released a nearly identical statement.
       The Bumble Bee recall includes five-ounce cans of chunk white albacore and chunk light carrying specific codes.


       The Chicken of the Sea recall covers certain lots of five-ounce chunk white albacore sold at retailers nationwide between February 4th and February 27th.
       Both companies say consumers should throw the recalled tuna out.


       For more information the number for Chicken of the Sea is 800-597-5898.
       The Bumble Bee number is 800-800-8572.
