Radiation in Tuna Information

Due to concerns about the Japanese disaster, we sent several samples of our canned albacore tuna to be tested by an independent laboratory for radiation. The results show that any level present is lower than their instrument can detect. The method used was FDA WEAC.RN.Method3, and Gamma Spectrometer.

We also had our 2014 catch tested for radiation and the results came back exactly the same as in 2013. Click on the link below to view the newest report:
