SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA -- Upon opening the can Chicken of the Sea crab meat I couldn't believe my eyes, someone or something must have regurgitated into the can. Not only was the appearance unappetizing but the tiny bit I reluctantly tried was crunchy with either sand or bits of shell. Forget the taste, I didn't even go that far! Another important complaint, had I seen the product was from Thailand I would not have purchased it. From now on I'll be more diligent nor will I buy any product from this company again.
Chicken of the Sea used to be #1, but is now at the bottom of my list. The tuna used to be flakey and now you get mush (more like by products). What has happened? I will no longer purchase Chicken of the Sea. The generic products are now better. The last four cans of Chicken of the Sea went into the trash. I almost gagged when I opened the cans.
I found a bone in my tuna, more that half the size of my thumb. The company asked me to send it to them so they could see it. I did. They told me they would return it but smashed it instead. It was sent tapped to cardboard, between cardboard and bubble wrapped. Beware.. I chocked on this bone and was lucky. A small child might not be so lucky. They told me it is normal to find bones in Tuna.
I have been buying for Chicken of the Sea for twenty plus years and always the Solid White Albacore brand. Lately the cans have had nothing solid in them and are closer to the brown side then white. It is clearly not the product that used to greet me when I opened the can. In the past I could remove the tuna with a fork, now I need to pass it through a strainer. I am totally disappointed with their decision to downgrade their product. I will be buying another brand in the future.
