FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - San Diego - November 16, 2012 – Tri-Union Seafoods LLC is voluntarily recalling a limited amount of Chicken of the Sea Brand 7-ounce cans of solid white albacore tuna in water.

Due to a labeling error, the product label does not state the product "contains soy," a recognized allergen, in the ingredients listing. While soy is known to be an allergen, there have been no reported illnesses, and Tri-Union Seafoods is issuing this voluntary recall to protect public health. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to soy run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products. This problem was identified during an internal audit of finished product at our canning facility.

Tri-Union Seafoods' trace-back measures determined distribution of the product at retail was limited to Costco stores in California, Arizona, Washington, Utah, Hawaii, Alaska, Oregon, New Mexico, Colorado, Montana, Idaho and Nevada.

The specific product being recalled is Chicken of the Sea Brand 7-ounce solid white albacore tuna in water sold as a multi-pack, and it was distributed in October and November, 2012. Consumers who purchased the product with UPC 0 48000 00097 2 and Best By dates between 10/01/16 through 11/09/16 are asked to return it to the Costco location where they purchased it for a full refund. The UPC code (also known as bar code) is found on the label of the product, and the Best By Date is printed on the bottom of the can.

"The health and safety of our consumers is paramount. As soon as we discovered the labeling error, we took immediate steps to issue this voluntary recall by alerting our customer who received the mislabeled product and by asking them to remove it from store shelves," said Shue Wing Chan, President of Tri-Union Seafoods. "In this instance only those that are allergic to soy are at risk. We are taking corrective steps in our labeling process to ensure this error does not repeat itself."

No other codes of this product or other Chicken of the Sea products are affected by this voluntary recall.

Go ahead...play with your food!

Hoser,
 
Thanks for your update and being on top of such disasters; for someone like myself who is allergic to Soy, this could be a horror film, on my digestive and stomach systems.
 
I read all labels scrutinizing carefully; even packaged breads have Soy content. I rarely buy packaged items, however, sometimes, time is of essence during my editorial deadlines and two jobs;  to go to the Farmer´s Central Market.
 
Appreciate all your current up dates.
 
Happy Thanksgiving.
Margi.
