    Tri-Union Seafoods is recalling 107,280 cans of its Chicken of the Sea tuna over concerns that the fish may be spoiled.

    The company is recalling 2,745 cases in total. 

    There are concerns that the tuna may be undercooked due to an equipment malfunction that was uncovered during an inspection.

    Undercooked tuna can lead to spoilage, which could cause life-threatening illness if the product is consumed, the company said. The recall is voluntary and there have been no reported illnesses in connection with the affected tuna cans, according to the company.

    The specific product being recalled is Chicken of the Sea’s 5oz cans of Chunk Light Tuna in Oil and 5oz cans of Chunk Light Tuna in Water.

    The cans of tuna in oil have a UPC code of 0 4800000195 5 and were sold between Feb. 10 and March 16 of this year.

    The cans of tuna in water have a UPC code of 0 4800000245 7 and were sold between Feb. 18 and March 16 of this year.
