Bumble Bee Foods warned Thursday morning that more than 31,000 cans of its “yum yum” tuna could cause serious problems for the tum tum. It’s recalling three different types of Chunk Light Tuna that were distributed nationwide because they may have spoiled — the recalled products are five-ounce cans of Chunk Light Tuna in Water and Chunk Light Tuna in Vegetable Oil, as well as four-packs of the kind in oil. They’re all marked with serial numbers that start with T, and the company has posted a full list of the affected codes.

The company says there was a sterilization mishap of some sort that may have caused “contamination by spoilage organisms or pathogens.” It warns the contents could even be life-threatening if they’re tainted, though no sicknesses have been reported yet. In case anybody was wondering, the tuna company has also clarified that this is somebody else’s fault, as the error “occurred in a co-pack facility not owned or operated by Bumble Bee.” Also, do not send Bumble Bee your maybe-deadly cans. To the question “Do you want me to return the products to Bumble Bee?” on the recall page’s FAQs, the company responds: “No, once you’ve confirmed that you do have a recalled product, please discard the product by disposing in the garbage.”
