gonna pass... this was a really informative review on Amazon:

"Used to be excellent product, now watered down, I'll tell you why
ByN. Sun on September 18, 2012
Verified Purchase
Having worked in the canned seafood industry, I sampled this product at work for consistency, quality, and taste. It was EXCELLENT back in 2007. I soon relied on this product for lunch (with Ritz crackers, Genova Tonno was very, very good) and also sometimes for snacks. I'd buy them in bulk here on Amazon at reasonable prices.

Having worked with canned tuna, I can tell you the prices of the "commodity" have gone way up across the board for light tuna (e.g. skipjack) and white tuna (e.g. albacore). This is due to increased fishing cost and decreased supply of fish. As sad of an issue as overfishing due to the trawling methods, the reality is we're seeing this reflected in the cost and quality of various seafood products, most notably via the traditional 6oz cans being downsized to 5oz first by Starkist followed by other shelf stable seafood manufacturers.

So this Genova Tonno product USED TO BE chunks of tuna in extra virgin olive oil with a nice balanced amount of salt. However, this product is now watery chunky tuna that has a bit of olive oil in it. And in case you didn't know, Genova is owned by Chicken of the Sea, who is actually owned by a Thai based company called Thai Union, which has its own packing facilities in Thailand. THIS IS NOT ITALIAN TUNA, do not let the name fool you. It is Italian-style, and like most of Chicken of the Sea products, Genova Tonno is packed in Thailand. Genova products are still very good and of a decent quality, but it just is not what it used to be because of the rising costs.

Given the higher prices of this product, I no longer recommend this due to the $2+ per 3oz can price tag. This used to make for a relatively healthy, affordable and delicious lunch or snack, but it is now not a very good value. I recommend other alternatives (skip the pre-made canned tuna spread, it's got too much mayo and salt in it). Or consider making your own Tonno/olive oil tuna. Just try and look for "natural" tuna if you can since trusted brands' old fashioned canned tuna in water contains vegetable broth/hydrolized protein that is injected to allow the fish to soak up more water (industry's dirty little secret). There are plenty of fast and easy to prepare tuna/salmon options online if you look close hard enough on Amazon"

Careful with these tunas, they are canned in China and known to contain dihydrogen monoxide above trace levels.

10Gauge,You should probably just stick with tofu , so you dont worry yourself sick.
Oh wait....I'm sure there is SOME kind of deadly chemical in tofu.

Wait...only took me a minute to find it.

"The pollutants, all detected in the past both in humans and in yellowfin tuna, included the upholstery flame retardant PBDE; pesticides such as dieldrin and DDT; and PCB, an industrial chemical."

The bigger the fish, the more the pollutants - try sardines or anchovies ?

If there is a better canned tuna I haven't tasted it. I've been eating "name brand" solid white tuna for years and this completely blows that away. Honestly, it makes ordinary canned tuna taste like cat food.

There are enough boobs here already, thanks. I didn't really think that I would be getting a Big Polluck to change his habits. I made it into old age by not ignoring my health, but feel free to pop out early if you want to ignore all those pollutants. I eat as little canned anything that I can - just sharing the advice.

I wrote a similar review about a year or so ago. The quality has been very hit or miss for me. I had a watery batch which was terrible as the above review said, then I had a batch of crushed cans because Amazon decided to ship them with something heavy and no padding so I sent those back (not the fault of the product), the next batch I got was back to original quality. I'm going through these cans and will probably need to reorder in a month so I'll see how the quality is then. For the price point, when the quality is on, this tuna is my favorite. I haven't come across something similarly priced that beats it.

I buy the 7 ounce cans at Costco and have never had a bad one. Best tuna that I've been able to find.

What is the pricing per ounce compared to this? I find the 5oz cans perfect for 1 serving for me.

Are you pushing man-boobs? Soy will do that for ya, LOL. I still think the tuna is safer.
Look it up. There isn't any empirical evidence supporting that. Only stuff like, there was this one guy drinking a ton of soymilk and he got huge tits. Having a normal amount seems to have no link to gynecomastia.

Has anyone here tried Tonnino brand tuna? It's packaged in a jar and has an array of different flavors. Although the price is a bit steep, the quality is really great and they use very minimal ingredients as well.
