MILWAUKEE - Tri-Union Seafoods LLC has expanded their recall of Chicken of the Sea tuna to include a limited amount of Chicken of the Sea brand 5-ounce chunk light tuna in oil. This is in addition to the limited amount of Chicken of the Sea brand 5-ounce chunk white albacore tuna in water announced March 6, 2013.
"The seams on the lids of the cans do not meet the standard for seam quality," said the company. "Cans that do not meet seam standards could result in product contamination by spoilage organisms or by pathogens, which could lead to illness if consumed. There have been no reported illnesses to date, and Tri-Union Seafoods is issuing this voluntary recall to ensure the highest margin of safety and quality."
Bumble Bee and Chicken of the Sea are included in the tuna recall.
