Tri-Union Seafoods, which produces Chicken of the Sea, recalled certain 12-ounce tuna cans in an announcement July 1st. The company reported that there was a production error that could have resulted in improper sealing of the cans.
Improper seals could result in the growth of botulism spores. When infected with Foodborne Botulism, the muscles begin paralysis. If not treated in time, the lungs will become paralyzed, resulting in the inability to breathe and, eventually, death.
These cans have been distributed to ten states including Wisconsin, California, Colorado, Indiana, Maine, Nebraska, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, and Utah.
So far, no one has fallen ill from these defective products.
