Bumble Bee Foods issued a nationwide recall Thursday of more than 31,000 cases of its Bumble Bee tuna.

The recall involves 5-ounce canned chunk light tuna in water and vegetable oil, produced in February.

Bumble Bee says the tuna could be spoiled or have other pathogens, which could lead to life-threatening illness.

The company detected improper sterilization at a third-party packing facility and has issued the recall out of an abundance of caution.

No illnesses have been reported.

Anyone who may have bought or consumed the product should call Bumble Bee at 888-820-1947.
