(Associated Press) Bumble Bee Foods LLC has more than doubled the size of its recall of some of its 5-ounce canned tuna because of a risk that the fish could become contaminated and spoil.

Bumble Bee said late Thursday that it’s now recalling 51,000 cases of canned tuna, up from its original 22,500 cases. Each case contains 24 to 48 cans. The company said that some cans’ seals may not be tight enough. Loose seals could let in germs and spoil the tuna, sickening an eater.

There have been no reports so far of any related illnesses.
