SAN DIEGO (AP) — 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.

The cans were distributed to retailers across the country between Jan. 17 and Wednesday and have "best by" rates that range from Jan. 14, 2016 through Jan. 18, 2016. The company originally announced the recall on Wednesday after identifying a problem on a manufacturing line, which has since been corrected.

The products subject to the recall include Bumble Bee brand and Brunswick brand 5-ounce cans of chunk white albacore in water and chunk light tuna in water and vegetable oil.

Consumers who think they may have purchased one of the recalled products should dispose of the canned tuna and contact Bumble Bee for a refund.

Privately held Bumble Bee is based in San Diego.
