Bumble Bee Foods is recalling 31,500 cases of of its canned Chunk Light tuna over possible contamination issues. 

The California-based company said the recall comes from "an abundance of caution." There have been no reported illnesses at the time of this publication. 

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.
