Tuna is a weird food. It’s either super cheap or very expensive, depending on what kind of tuna you get and where you get it from. It also kind of depends on the kind of tuna we’re talking about. When it comes to Bumble Bee, the company has been canning various types of fish since 1910, and it has a very good reputation for safety and being of good quality. That’s why Bumble Bee Foods have organized a recall of some of its products over loose seals on cans. The recall covers the 5-ounce Chunk White Albacore and Chunk Light Tuna cans.
“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,” said Steve Mavity of Bumble Bee Foods. “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.”
As we’ve seen, bad tuna fish can make a lot of people very, very sick, so it’s probably a good idea for Bumble Bee to take the lead on this rather than waiting for the Food and Drug Administration to get involved. The last thing you need is to make anyone sick from anything, because once you hurt your customer base, those customers usually don’t come back.
