March 7, 2013 at 12:50 AM   |   Comments

WASHINGTON, March 7 (UPI) -- Bumble Bee Foods officials issued a voluntary recall on specific codes of 5-ounce Chunk White Albacore and Chunk Light Tuna products due to loose seals.

"Due to can integrity concerns, our top priority at this time is to remove these recalled products from distribution as soon as possible. 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," Steve Mavity of Bumble Bee Foods said in a statement.

"There have been no consumer reports of illnesses attributed to these products, but because we've identified an issue with seal tightness, we're voluntarily recalling products to ensure the highest margin of safety and quality."

Loose seals or seams could result in product contamination by spoilage organisms or pathogens and lead to illness if consumed, Mavity said.

Consumers can contact Bumble Bee Consumer Affairs 24 hours a day at (800) 800-8572.
