EARLIER -- Bumble Bee Foods is recalling more than 31,500 cases of canned tuna "out of an abundance of caution," the company announced Wednesday.

No illnesses have been reported in connection with the tuna.

— If you haven’t redeemed your Toys R Us gift cards, get to your nearest store ASAP.
The April 21 expiration date also applies to the company’s Endless Earnings eGift Cards for customers who earned rewards from baby registry purchases.
Liquidations sales began at Toys R Us stores nationwide as early as March 23.
At that time, customers who participated in the company’s various rewards programs were no longer able to earn rewards or obtain rewards that had not already been issued.
Earlier this week, some customers complained that they were not able to redeem Toys R Us gift cards because of computer glitches. A company spokesperson said they were not aware of any widespread issues that prevented customers from cashing in their gift cards.
On March 29, the company shuttered its website, leaving customers only the option of shopping at the brick-and-mortar stores.
While the most popular toy items at stores have probably been sold, anyone who has not used up their gift cards is advised to do so. All stores are expected to be fully liquidated by June. All merchandise sold during the liquidation is final sale.
Customers who have questions about products, warranties or rewards can reach the Customer Service Department at 800-TOYSRUS or 800-869-7787 between 8 a.m. and 11 p.m. EDT.

— A Memphis woman said that while she was in line to put in her offering in at a South Memphis church, someone stole her wallet out of her purse.
Police are investigating the incident.
Shirley Williams said the church was the last place she thought anything would be stolen from her.
"Because we were in church, I just can't believe anyone would do that,” Williams said.
Williams said someone bumped her from behind while she was in the offering line at a midweek service at the Temple of Deliverance Church on Tuesday night.
Williams said she never really thought anything of it until she noticed that her purse had been unzipped. Then she realized her wallet was gone. Williams said the church allowed her to search in the area in which she was sitting and other areas in the church for her wallet.
"I searched everywhere. We went back to the church and we just couldn't find it anywhere,” Williams said.
Williams said she’s retired and is living on a fixed income. She said all of her insurance cards and things she needed to go about her everyday life were in her wallet.
"It was just upsetting because it happened in church,” Williams said.
She said she’s certain she didn’t misplace her wallet anywhere and she’s not going to allow this incident to keep her from going to her church.
"I'm praying for forgiveness for them and for them to change their life,” Williams said.
We located several surveillance cameras around the church, but it has not yet been confirmed whether the incident was caught on any of them.
WHBQ did call and leave a message at the church, but our phone call has not been returned.

— The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has expanded its warning to include all types of romaine lettuce. The warning now includes whole heads and hearts of romaine lettuce, in addition to chopped romaine and salads and salad mixes containing romaine.
The CDC also asks consumers to “not buy or eat romaine lettuce at a grocery store or restaurant unless you can confirm it is not from the Yuma, Arizona, growing region.”
Additionally, the CDC suggests that consumers throw away any romaine lettuce in the home, even if some of it was eaten and no one has gotten sick.
At least 31 people have been hospitalized, including three who developed a type of kidney failure, according to the CDC.
No deaths related to the outbreak have been reported.
The CDC has not yet identified the grower or a common brand, and is urging people not to eat chopped lettuce from the Yuma area.
Symptoms of an E. coli infection vary, but often include severe stomach cramps and diarrhea, which is often bloody. Most people get better in five to seven days. Infections can be mild, but can also be severe and even life-threatening.
People started reporting illnesses that are part of the outbreak between March 22 and March 31.
DNA fingerprinting is being used to identify illnesses that are part of the same outbreak. Some people might not be included in the CDC’s case count if officials weren’t able to get bacteria strains needed for DNA fingerprinting to link them to the outbreak.
To reduce your risk of an E. coli infection, you can:
