H-E-B Recalls Hill Country Fare Tuna Cans

The recall affects 224 cases, or 10,752 cans of tuna

Texas grocery chain H-E-B has voluntarily recalled thousands of cans of tuna that may have been undercooked.

The recall affects 224 cases, or 10,752 cans, of Hill County Fare brand five ounce Chunk Light Tuna in Oil.

The tuna "may have been undercooked due to an equipment malfunction, which was uncovered during a routine inspection," H-E-B said in a statement.

The undercooked tuna could result in contamination and spoilage, which may lead to life-threatening illness if consumed, the company said.

The canned tuna was sold at H-E-B stores across Texas in single cans between Feb. 24, 2016 and Mar. 16, 2016. The cans of tuna in oil have a UPC code of 0 4122065335 5.

Customers can return the tuna for a full refund.

There have been no reported illnesses to date, according to H-E-B.
