If you think there’s something fishy going on with your canned goods, you could be right! Bumble Bee has issued a recall of some of its 5-ounce cans of Chunk White Albacore and Chunk Light Tuna products because the fish could possibly spoil, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
Bumble Bee said on Wednesday that some of the cans weren’t sealed tight enough, which could potentially allow pathogens to spoil the tuna, making consumers sick.
Fortunately, there haven’t been any reports of illness due to tuna yet, so hopefully the bad cans have been dumped. The possible tainted cans were distributed across the U. S. between January 17 and February 28 and have “best by” dates from January 16 to January 18, 2016.
Well, this puts a damper on our zombie apocalypse disaster planning! Tuna is the perfect food to stock up on due to its lengthy shelf life, but now we might have to reconsider.
In the meantime, Bumble Bee is urging consumers to return any of the recalled cans of tuna in exchange for their money back. For more information on this recall, visit the FDA.
