IDAHO -- I have bought Chicken Of The Sea for many years and I am forced to complain about the mushy tuna and say that I will never have to throw away another can of tuna again because I will never buy another can until the co. will make tuna tuna again.

I noticed the same thing and I stopped buying it a long time ago for that very reason.

I like the tuna in the pouches. I think they made the canned tuna lessor quality in exchange for the higher quality of the pouch tuna.

I also prefer the pouches. The last can of tuna I had purchased, was Bumble Bee brand, and it was supposed to be solid white tuna in water, and it was more like chunky mystery tuna in a can, and it smelled so fishy. Horrible.

OP, you can contact Chicken of the Sea at:

Tuna in water is icky... it needs to be canned in oil!
The same is true of sardines...

Tuna is water is healthier, but to each his own.

Either way, canned tuna is gross. Tuna in pouches has a better product.

And sardines, EWWWWWWW :)

I agree with Skye that Tuna in water is better than in oil and its good in cans! The sardines, on the otherhand, should be bathe in oil!

I must have no palate because I have no qualms about eating (generic no less) canned tuna. :)

I have always found Chicken of the Sea canned tuna to be inferior to other brands. Star Kist is the most consistent in quality, and although there is less in the can now, it's still good. I tried the pouch out of curiosity. Other than being more convenient, I didn't think it was worth the extra money. It's quite expensive.

Tuna packed in oil does seem to be better. If you drain the oil and rinse the tuna, it's not really that unhealthy.
