Chicken of the Sea Recalls Over 100,000 Canned Chunk Light Tuna

It hasn’t been a great week for tuna fish lovers.


Tuna giant Chicken of the Sea is following on the heels of Bumble Bee Foods, LLC, and voluntarily recalling some light tuna products over possible contamination issues.

Tri-Union Seafoods LLC announced on Thursday certain cans of Chicken of the Sea light tuna fish may have been undercooked due to an equipment malfunction.

A little over 100,000 cans of Chicken of the Sea fall under the recall which affects 5 oz. canned chunk light tuna in oil and in water.

The company said the issue was discovered during a routine inspection. According to the statement, no illnesses have been reported.

The cans were distributed nationwide between Feb. 10 and March 16.  Consumers can take the product to the store where they purchased it for a full refund, according to the company.
