These products were distributed for retail sale nationwide between January 17, 2013 and February 28, 2013.
Bumble Bee Foods SVP of Technical Services and Corporate Quality Assurance Steve Mavity said: “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.”
Mavity added, “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.”
Consumers who have purchased the recalled products should discard the product by disposing in the garbage.
For any questions concerning this voluntary recall or reimbursement, consumers can contact Bumble Bee Consumer Affairs 24 hours a day at (800) 800-8572.

Thank you for this info-I hadn't heard of it before now. You are always so thoughtful with sharing the latest recalls. I wanted to ask you if Vie ever has anxiety issues if you are away? Hunter was sick this last week while we were gone and although I was told it was a virus, I also believe stress played a big part. How do you deal with this, if you travel? I won't be boarding him again but he usually stays with our daughter and her bichon(where he seems very happy). Any tips would be appreciated.
