    The three products that fall under the voluntary recall are: 5 oz Bumble Bee Chunk Light Tuna in Water, 5 oz Bumble Bee Chunk Light Tuna in Oil, and the 4-pack of 5 oz Bumble Bee Chunk Light Tuna in Water.

    Bumble Bee Foods has voluntarily recalled some canned tuna over possible contamination that could lead to life-threatening illness.

    The company said “process deviations” at a third-party facility during the sterilization process could result in contamination by spoilage organisms or pathogens.

    That possible contamination could lead to life-threatening illness if the tuna is consumed, the company said.

    Bumble Bee said the products are being recalled out of an abundance of caution and that there have been no reports of illness associated with the affected tuna.

    The three products that fall under the recall are: 5oz Bumble Bee Chunk Light Tuna in Water, 5oz Bumble Bee Chunk Light Tuna in Oil, and the 4-pack of 5oz Bumble Bee Chunk Light Tuna in Water.

     The products have one of the following three UPC labels: 8660000020, 8660000021 and 8660000736.

    Customers who purchased the recalled products are advised to throw them away.

    Bumble Bee has created a page for the recall on its website.
