Bumble Bee Foods is recalling three specific UPC codes of canned tuna due to possible, life-threatening health risk.
Bumble Bee Foods, LLC announced (March 16, 2016) that it is voluntarily recalling 3 specific UPC codes of canned Chunk Light tuna due to process deviations that occurred in a co-pack facility not owned or operated by Bumble Bee.

It is important to note that there have been no reports of illness associated with these products to date. No other production codes or products are affected by this recall.
There are a total of 31,579 cases that are included in the recall which were produced in February 2016 and distributed nationally. The products subject to this recall are marked with a can code that starts with a “T” (example: TOA2BSCAFB) and have the following “best by” dates:
