However, customers are advised to throw out cans of three types of tuna because of "deviations" in the usual sterilization process. There's a chance this led to contamination by pathogens, which could be life-threatening if consumed.

The company said customers should avoid cans with codes starting with the letter T. The recalled tuna was packaged at a facility not owned or operated by Bumble Bee.
