HAILEY, IDAHO -- Bought a 32 ounce bag of Chicken of the Sea 30-40 per pound shrimp at Albertson's in Hailey, Idaho. Weighed the contents. 24 ounces. That's only 3/4 of the advertised weight. Don't ever buy Chicken of the Sea products unless you actually weigh their products in the store to make sure they aren't ripping you off. As far as I'm concerned, if I don't have a scale handy, I'll never buy another Chicken of the Sea product again.
SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA -- I bought a can of Chicken of the Sea Medium Shrimp from Albertson's and when I opened the can, the shrimp content was gray and smelled very rank... and then I read the can. Warning... PRODUCT OF INDONESIA. Please BOYCOTT ALL Chicken of the Sea products and force these clowns to produce a quality product based on demand, not profit.
SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA -- Not once, not twice, but all too often, the Chicken Of The Sea solid white tuna is pure mush. All it's good for is a tuna sandwich mixed with mayo. Cannot use it for salads or for just the solid tuna people purchase it for. I have bought my last can of Chicken Of The Sea. Onto other brands. Frankly, the most solidly consistent solid tuna I have found is believe it or not, Shop Rite brand.
And now that Chicken Of The Sea has removed a phone number where they can be reached, they have really lost me. Do they think people are going to waste more money, a 45 cent stamp and more time on their sub-par product? They are "plenty of other fish in the sea".
SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA -- I actually went in search, for any other negative experience with chicken of the sea's "Chunk white Albacore Tuna".. and have found that others have had the same negative experience. Their tuna is very mushy, hardly any chunks whatsoever.. at first I thought maybe I had a bad can, but I have tried several cans and the results were the same. I actually think that Chicken of the Sea is misrepresenting their product and duping their consumers... Chunk White Albacore...NOT! Mushy tuna or dolphin, maybe? I will not buy this product again, until I've heard some positive changes have been made. Chicken of the Sea's Chunk white albacore is terrible!
I purchased a can of Chicken of The Sea White Crab and upon opening the can, I stared at its content and couldn't believe what I saw. It looked like white oatmeal or farina cereal!! I then tried some with a fork - no taste. Then I heated it in a fry pan with melted butter - still no taste. Once passed the crunch of the bits of shell in the crab, I was hard pressed to decide whether to keep eating it or dispose of it. I strongly suggest Chicken of The Sea cancel their Vietnam contract and discontinue this product. Just a thought.
There is no longer a number you can contact to let consumer affairs know the quality of tuna being produced by their employees. Now you expect someone to write a letter and send it to whoever, wherever. How convenient for you. By the way, my complaint was that your CHUNK white tuna is pure mush. No pieces of tuna at all. This has been an ongoing problem for several years. I decided to call customer service and let them know, AGAIN, about the problem, so they could look in to it again, So much for the consumer!! I will buy Starkist from now on, goodbye.
AUGUSTA, MAINE -- Today I used the second can of Van Camp's Chicken of the Sea Chunk Light Tuna that I had in my cupboard. When I opened the can it looked like slivers of tuna floating around in broth. I couldn't even squeeze all the water out of the can because the mushy tuna wanted to squeeze out with it. Adding mayonnaise made the tuna even more wet, making it the consistency of soup. My complaint is (actually it's more like a question) - How can a company say it's chunk light tuna when it's really not? I think this company should go back in time and use whatever old processing that really was chunk light.
I remember that time and I was pleased with the chunk light tuna that really did have chunks of tuna in it. I've always thought of Chicken of the Sea as a top-notch company. I'm very disappointed.
SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA -- Bought a four pack of solid white tuna. Opened and it looked like mush and the fish smell was overpowering. I had some in a salad, but my husband refused to eat it in a sandwich because of the smell. I called the tuna council and Chicken of the sea but only got to leave messages.
CALIFORNIA -- Buyer beware. Chicken of the Sea Tuna and other products are total mush, terrible and some makes you sick, not even good enough for my pets. Please beware and save your money, as this has been going on for years now and I will never by Chick of the Sea again. Please tell all your friends, help them not make the same costly mistake. Thank you.
I agree with another writer. Purchased a multi can pack of chunk light tuna and it is so watery that it cannot be strained without losing the tuna that is there (my cats like it- their tuna juice is a lot chunkier). Tuna fish salad for sandwiches comes out like tuna soup with celery and onion. Tuna casserole, the entire can went in, forget straining it. Whatever process they are using now for packing the cans is not working for those of us who eat tuna on a regular basis.
