The white albacore tuna is not the same. Too flaky, dark and tasteless. Have bought this product over 40 years in the past year or so. It has totally changed. Just bought my last cans hoping it would be better. It is not.
Bought 20 cans of Bumble Bee tuna on sale. This is supposed to be solid white tuna. First 4 cans I opened the top of the tuna on one side of can is brown. Not brown like chunk tuna but brown that something is wrong. As stated in other reviews bottom of can says best by April 19, 2024 product of Mauritius. I considered Bumble Bee to be the gold standard of tuna. No more.

I purchased a 4 pack of Bumble Bee albacore chunk white tuna from Walmart. It looked liked brown mush. I am 63 and have not even seen light tuna looked like this. It smelled strong so I threw It away. Unfortunately I did not have my receipt and Walmart did not give me full refund. I will never buy bumble bee again.
Opened one can. Looked spoiled, but didn't smell bad. Looked like watery cat food with a brownish scum floating on top, and the contents looked to be almost pureed, with flecks of reddish brown particles. Took a picture to file complaint with Bumble Bee. Opened a second can. Same experience. Put both cans, with contents, in zip bags and froze. Checked remaining cans. All same batch and date. All indicate Product of Mauritius. Use by date Apr 23, 2023. Have 6 more cans of this destined for the landfill.
Others have accurately pictured what this mush looks like, but no one has commented on the fact that BB tuna, like BB canned mackerel, is a product of China. Check YouTube for documentaries on China's poisoning its own people with deadly chemicals in food as varied as noodles and baby formula. Worse perhaps is the can itself which according to tests contains "unacceptable amounts" of lead. ANY amount of lead is unacceptable! If you're lucky to live near a Costco, their Kirkland brand white albacore tuna is phenomenal.
I was so shocked at the look of my Albacore Tuna that I wrote to Bumble Bee about my experience. I received 2 letters. One of them which came a week after I had written asked for a sample of the tuna. REALLY!! Like I would have saved the stinky nasty stuff. They also said that there was a special shipping package for me to put the tuna in. That never came! REALLY!! again.
I had to throw out all 4 cans of the tuna I purchased. It was not white, in fact it was dark, with a lot of red in it. It was very mushy, and shredded. Not happy at all. Will never ever ever buy this again.
I stocked up in Solid White Tuna in water. The tuna has always been white and more solid. The color was a sickly yellow and brown. It wasn't solid but looked more like hash. More than one can was that way.
My experience with Bumble Bee Tuna is the worst product labeling under Albacore Chunk White Tuna, it’s really cat food???? I'll never purchase this product again. It use to be a great tuna, but no more!!!!
I went out and bought TEN cans of " Bumble Bee Chunk White ALBACORE Tuna in water" and it sure wasn't what it said it would be. I've seen cat food look better. It sure is not what it said it would be. This product is not cheap. I'm afraid to open any other cans to find the same thing. I cannot eat this junk. It looks like cat food. If I had a cat, I would try and see if it would eat it. I know I won't. Thank you for your time.
