H-E-B is voluntarily recalling 224 cases (10,752 cans) of Hill Country Fare brand 5 oz. Chunk Light Tuna in Oil, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

These deviations were part of the commercial sterilization process and could result in contamination by spoilage organisms or pathogens, which could lead to life-threatening illness if consumed.
There have been no reported illnesses to date, H-E-B is issuing this voluntary recall in abundance of caution to ensure the highest level of food safety and quality, said the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
