Additional information:
The US Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) reports the following Tuna are subject to this recall:

  • Hill Country Fare Chunk Light Tuna in Oil, product lot code 6O9FZ SCEES; best-by date (printed on the bottom of the can) is 2/9/19; UPC: 0 4122065335 5

Please consult the photograph above for details of the food’s packaging, design and retail presentation.

According to the FDA, this recall was initiated because the Tuna, produced at a co-packer, may have been undercooked due to an equipment malfunction. This deviation was part of the commercial sterilization process and could result in contamination by spoilage organisms or pathogens, which, in turn, could lead to life-threatening illness if consumed. There have been no reported illnesses to date.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Tuna, please do not consume it. Instead, kindly return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.
