Bumble Bee Tuna Brands voluntarily recalled on Thursday dozens of lots of canned tuna fish after the company discovered seals on the cans may be faulty, making the food vulnerable to spoilage and contamination which could sicken consumers.

UPDATE: Canned Tuna Recall Expands

The recall applies to these 5-ounce cans of chunk white albacore and chunk light tuna products:

Brunswick Brand

  • Chunk Light Tuna in Water – 48 Count Case (Case UPC 6661332803)

Bumble Bee Brand

  • Chunk Light Tuna in Water – 48 Count Case (Case UPC 8660000020)
  • Chunk Light Tuna in Vegetable Oil – 48 Count Case (Case UPC 8660000021)
  • Chunk White Albacore in Water – 24 Count Case (Case UPC 8660000025)

  • Chunk White Albacore in Water – 6 Count Case of 8-Pack Cluster (Case UPCS 8660000776)

All the cans have "best by" dates between Jan. 16 and 18, 2016.
