Tri-Union Seafoods LLC has voluntarily recalled more than 107,000 cans of Chicken of the Sea brand 5 oz. canned chunk light tuna in oil and 5 oz. canned chunk light tuna in water because the products may have been undercooked after an equipment malfunction.

The San Diego, California-based company announced Wednesday in a press release that officials identified the risk during a routine inspection. Improperly sterilized products may leave consumers at risk of exposure to spoilage or pathogens, which could lead to life-threatening illness.
