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.
