2 popular canned tuna brands get recalled
Bumble Bee and Chicken of the Sea pull some 5-ounce cans due to concerns about spoilage.
What has the companies worried is that the seals on the cans aren't tight enough. The seals could be so loose that they let in air and outside contaminants, which could spoil the tuna.
The two companies issued nearly identical announcements saying the seams on the lids of the cans "do not meet the standard for seam quality."
So far, it doesn't seem like anyone has become ill. If you have one of these cans, throw it out and contact Bumble Bee by calling 800-800-8572 or the producer of Chicken of the Sea by calling 800-597-5898.
Here are the affected cans:
- Brunswick brand chunk light tuna in water.
- Bumble Bee brand chunk light tuna in water.
- Bumble Bee brand chunk light tuna in vegetable oil.
- Bumble Bee brand chunk white albacore tuna in water.
- Chicken of the Sea brand chunk white albacore tuna in water.
Dialed the number above you are told to dial 888.820.1947 Where you hear a tape" We are concerned and nest person will get to you shortly" after 3 minutes of this the tape changes to press "9" to leave message. After 6 more minutes you hear the fax machine tones then they hang up.
I know they are probably overwhelmed but come on, it makes you look really suspicious.
It's common knowledge that the best tuna is reserved for the Japanese while the worst, crap, Fukushima irradiated tuna crud is left for the Americans.
Why is this? Because the Japanese people (we are told), will just go absolutely, positively nuts without their tuna. The fact of the matter is that China isn't the only country that routinely gets the shaft from Japan.
The situation is so bad that Americans are routinely fed tuna that isn't even tuna at all but something barely even fish -- just "fish like". Why? Because Americans are considered so born-at-birth stupid and are kept that way in a culture that practically invented bait and switch, in the land of suckers ruled by greed and avarice, run by crooks and thieves.
When I shake a (12oz can) of Bumble Bee (chunk white albacore) I hear liquid freely swishing around. Is that normal?
Ughhhh Bumble Bee Albacore only!
That chunk is garbage and other brands dont compare to BB.
