Shoprite, Checkers recall Cape Point tuna amid concerns of defective double seams

Shoprite and Checkers have recalled 170g cans of Cape Point Light Meat Shredded Tuna in Water from stores across the country.

It's understood there is a possibility of cans with defective double seams.

Despite some concerns, no complaints have been reported.

According to a statement from the supermarket chain, the recall was done as a precautionary measure.

The voluntary recall is limited to products with the following production code: EEJCK BPHGS01. (The production date is 23/07/2021 and best before date is 23/07/2024.)

''Cape Point Light Meat Shredded Tuna in Water products in 170g cans with different product codes from the one listed here are not affected by this recall, and neither are any other Cape Point products. To locate the production code, consumers should look on the bottom of the can," said the statement.

Consumers who may have purchased the product listed above should not consume it but instead return it to their nearest Shoprite or Checkers store for a full refund.

The group added they were working closely with and would continue to co-operate with the National Consumer Commission on the voluntary recall.
