A total of 31,579 cases produced in February 2016 and distributed nationally were included in the recall. The products are marked with a can code that starts with a “T.”

The three products involved in the recall are 5 ounce Bumble Bee Chunk Light Tuna in Water, 5 ounce Bumble Bee Chunk Light Tuna in Oil and 4 pack of 5 ounce Bumble Bee Chunk Light Tuna in Water.
