The store says the recall was launched after they learned the product may have been undercooked due to an equipment malfunction. The tuna is produced at a third-party packing company.

The undercooked tuna could result in spoilage, which may sicken those who eat it with life-threatening illness.

The recall affects Hill Country Fare brand 5-ounce canned Chunk Light Tuna in Oil sold between February 24 and March 16. The cans will have a printed "best by" date of February 9, 2019 on the can, and a product lot code "6O9FZ SCEES."

Customers with these cans can return them to any H-E-B store for a full refund. If you have questions regarding the recall, contact customer service at 855-432-4438.
