Three million cans of tuna at risk of spoiling recalled
HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Two of the most popular brands are voluntarily recalling 3 million cans of tuna, because of a problem in the canning process that could cause the tuna to spoil and make you sick.
Tuna is staple of Irma Garza's diet.
"We do eat it a lot, that's one of the main things we use when we come out here to just have fun with the family," Garza said.
But Garza plans to check her pantry after learning about a recall on canned tuna.
Three million 5-ounce cans are being recalled by Bumble Bee and Chicken of the Sea because of the loose seals or seams on the can, which could cause the tuna to spoil and potentially make people sick.
"I would not want my kids, I have three girls, to get anything," tuna consumer Anitria Glass said. "It is an important part of our diet."
The Bumble Bee Tuna in the recall involves 5-ounce cans of chunk white tuna in water and oil, and chunk light tuna. The cans were sold from January 17 and March 6 and have a "best-by" date from January 14, 2016 to January 18, 2016.
The Chicken of the Sea recall involves 5-ounce cans of chunk light tuna in water sold from February 4 through February 27 and have a "best-by" date January 18, 2017.
Also recalled by Chicken of the Sea is the chunk light tuna in oil sold from January 23 until March 6. The cans have a "best-by" date of January 15, 2015.
Kroger says both brands of tuna were sold at its stores, and customers can bring back the cans for a refund. HEB says only cans of Chicken of the Sea Tuna in oil were on its shelves, refunds are also available for customers.
If you bought the recalled tuna at Kroger using a Kroger Card, the store will send you an automatic update on the recalled tuna.
