The company says the tuna could've been undercooked due to an equipment malfunction.

"As soon as we discovered the issue, we took immediate steps to initiate this voluntary recall, alerting our retail customers that received the product and instructing them to remove it from store shelves."

This is the second recall of canned tuna in the past week. Cans of Bumble Bee tuna were recalled last week.
