Tri-Union Seafoods is voluntarily recalling a limited amount of Chicken of the Sea brand 5-ounce cans of chunk white albacore tuna in water.

The seams on the lids of the cans do not meet the standard for seam quality. Cans that do not meet seam standards could result in product contamination. There have been no reported illnesses to date, and Tri-Union Seafoods is issuing this voluntary recall to ensure the highest margin of safety and quality.

The specific product being recalled is Chicken of the Sea Brand 5-ounce chunk white albacore tuna in water sold at retail nationwide in single cans between 4 and 27 February 2013.

The UPC code is found on the label of the product and is 0 48000 03355 0. The Best By date is printed on the bottom of the can and is 01/18/17. The product lot codes that are part of this voluntary recall can also be found on the bottom of the can.

“The health and safety of our consumers is paramount. As soon as we discovered the issue, we took immediate steps to issue this voluntary recall by alerting our customers who received the product and by asking them to remove it from store shelves,” said Shue Wing Chan, Tri-Union president.

No other codes of this product or other Chicken of the Sea products are affected by this voluntary recall.
