My most recent purchase of Chicken of the Sea "Premium Solid Albacore Tuna" in the can was fantastic. Very satisfied with the flavour and solidness of the packed tuna in the can. I would say quality for this product.

This is 2021 and I am just reading about Chicken of the Sea Tuna complaints. I bought 6-12 oz cans of Chicken of the sea from Walmart since the brands Starkist and Bumblebee were sold out. I remember Mom buying it 40 years ago but I don't think I have bought it in a long time. I opened 2 cans of Solid White Albacore and the smell of the drained liquid was horrible, never smelled like this in the other 2 brands. I took the 4 unopened cans back to Walmart and swore I would never buy Chicken of the sea ever again, No wonder it's the last tuna on the shelves unsold! It's really nasty and I don't think it was really tuna it smelled that bad. NEVER AGAIN!

    Hello. Making this short. Do not buy Chicken of the Sea brand crab meat in the can. Loaded with shells. I called them. They told me they would replace the value. Never did. The can cost 18.99. Very rude company. I would never buy again. There was tons of shells inside the can. We had company over. It was very embarrassing. When I called they told me not to worry. They never replaced it or returned any money back to me. I am disabled and live on SSI. Never again. Dont buy from them. #gross chicken of the sea. Chickens dont live in the sea.

    I have been eating Chicken of the Sea tuna infusions for a while now and for the most part, I think they have been ok. But the last flavor I tried was the sun dried tomato. Every time I had one I experienced SEVERE diarrhea. We purchased six containers at once and every container had the same effect on me. There are two left in the cupboard and I don’t think I can eat them. I looked at the ingredients and there aren’t any strange hidden gems there. Something is wrong with these tunas.

    I bought several cans of Chicken of the Sea Albacore Solid White Tuna (in water) expecting a quality tuna in the can. The tuna in the can was not packed tightly and was very loose in the water and very mushy. I was ripped off by them. I saved the remainder cans and I will forward them to the FDA (Federal US government Food and Drug Administration). I do not play the run-around game when it comes to food. Report your concerns if you feel you have been taken advantage of with your food purchases to the FDA, they have regulations concerning appropriate labeling of canned tuna and other foods. The current company owning Chicken of the Sea is the Thai Union Group in Samut Sakhon, Thailand - NOT Van Camp!

    I purchased 6 cups of Infusions sundried tomato four days ago. When I opened the product to eat it was molded and spoiled. Will include photos. It is so disgusting! Very bad quality control. Very disappointed in this product as a whole! Someone is going to get very sick eating this product. I want a full refund and considering reporting to drug and food administration!

    Like many of the others grew up eating Chicken of the Sea. What has happened to the quality? I recently tried it twice, both time which should have been quality albacore was mushy, fatty like substance and smelly. No more Chicken of the Sea for us.

    I went to my pantry and grab a can of Chicken of the Sea Tuna in Water. I opened the can to find it covered in white green and blue mold and fungus. This was to be served to my nine-year-old daughter on who loves pasta with tuna and I was beyond mortified. I honestly never have had this issue before but this one time and the severity of it has really put me off.

    I purchased 3 cans of VanCamp's Chicken of the Sea Chunk White Albacore Tuna in water from Dollar Tree on Main Street in the Tractor Supply Plaza in Gouverneur, NY. 13642. I tried to contact the Dollar Tree through their website but they do not have the button to click on for reporting products. This tuna is the worst I have ever bought. Smells putrid, half rotten, and should not be eaten. Save your money and buy real tuna in the regular grocery stores. Even most of my cats walked away from it and the two that did eat it got sick and threw it up. Any other brand and they beg for more. Product of Thailand, but canned in the US. Date of use is 01/15/22. This tuna fish does not even make good pet food, so do not risk eating it or feeding it to humans. The bar code is: 0 48000 03365 9

    The weight of these cans are 5 ounce cans. I purchased it less than a week ago.

    Even the trashiest tuna known to man that is distributed by Food Pantry's is a far cry better than this that my cats will eat, but I will not due to the smell of that also. This product needs to be recalled and pulled from the shelves. Not easy to report this product to those that can make a difference. You should be ashamed selling this product in your stores.

    At least Dollar General sells good tasting tuna. My only inconvenience is cleaning up the cat puke, and not having tuna to put into my mac salad which the other ingredients will no doubt go bad before I can get a ride back to a store that sells great tasting tuna, such as Dollar General. One thing to remember if you get to read this post, I am honest and tell it exactly like it is with absolutely no exaggeration. You can stick this tuna where the sun don't shine.

    Like all the others, I grew up with Chicken of the Sea. The tuna is disgusting now. I had fish skin and two bones before I could get through half of my sandwich. I have 7 cans left and will not donate it or even give it to my dogs. I feel nauseous and my stomach is gurgling. This is completely ridiculous. There are so many on here saying the same things, I cannot believe they can still send this bottom of the barrel junk.
