...Canned Tuna (Light)?

Safe, But...

Enjoy it in limited amounts if it is fully cooked!

Pregnant women can enjoy canned chunk light tuna (fully cooked) as part of the two six-ounce servings of low mercury cooked seafood they eat per week. 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 chuck light tuna is in the class of fish considered to have the lowest amount of mercury.
