Foster’s Food Fair – IGA not affected by Bumble Bee Seafood Recall
March 17th, 2016
Foster’s Food Fair-IGA would like to announce that Bumble Bee Seafoods of San Diego, California is recalling specific codes of canned Chunk Light Tuna due to process deviations that occurred in a co-pack facility not owned or operated by Bumble Bee. These deviations were part of the commercial sterilization process and could result in contamination by spoilage organisms or pathogens, which could lead to life threatening illness if consumed.
There are a total of 31,579 cases that are included in the recall which were produced in February 2016 and distributed nationally. The products subject to this recall are marked with a can code that starts with a “T” (example: TOA2BSCAFB) and have the following “best by” dates:
It is important to note that there have been no reports of illness associated with these products to date. The recall is being initiated out of an abundance of caution due to the possible under-processing of the affected products discovered by the co-packer during its routine quality audit.
According to our supplier, the affected shipment landed in Cayman but was destroyed on their premises before reaching any of our locations.
