Safe, But...

Don't eat too much of it!

Pregnant women can enjoy canned white albacore tuna (fully cooked) as part of the three six-ounce servings of high mercury cooked seafood they eat per month. Due to high levels of mercury, the FDA recommends a limit on the amount and kind of seafood pregnant women ingest to prevent harm to themselves and their baby. According to the American Pregnancy Association, canned white albacore tuna is in the class of fish considered to have a high amount of mercury.
