Personally, I'd rather see justification for the cold votes than see what seems to be a good deal at minus rating.

I still wash and drain it

Well the Tuna didn't die if mercury poisoning did it lol

with 39 tins of tuna you could have surely stacked them in a more jovial manor for the picture

Just mercury on toast and mercury with beans. Pure protein

This is the standard price in Farmfoods (£1.99) so wouldn't rush out and stock pile. Oh wait, never mind.

PS: If you buy this many (x13) in Farmfoods print off a voucher and get £2.50 off a £25 shop bringing them down to £1.80 a pack.

Been doing a bit of fishing and no drain packs are just under £5 in most supermarkets and the farm food price is for standard and not no drain.

Farmfoods is the exact same product. Have been buying it for a few months when I pass along with their £1 grated cheese (can't remember the brand) that's £3 everywhere else. Maybe not available everywhere but definitely sell no drain in the Glasgow ones.

Those comments you are referring to make me look up and read about the possibility of mercury poisoning from this product, something I wouldn't have otherwise known. Granted a link would have been useful. However I learn many, many useful things from the comments on this site. It would be boring if all the comments were along the lines of 'good deal'.

And there are many people who scream the second their deal is cold without any justification in the comments.

Was it John West tuna which wasn't/isn't dolphin friendly? Have they changed how they catch the fish or was it another brand?

​Haha! Usually I pop into the local take away and ask for some plain cooked pitta bread to have with the tuna and cheese so that possibly makes it worse. I do sprinkle some seasoning on top for the kicks.

Thankfully its just a delicacy I have from time to time rather than a regular post workout protein injection as I couldn't cope with all the stress of plating it up daily.

I seen on John West site (when I was researching contamination due to above comments) they have a 50p off voucher for these tins and Tesco are selling single tins for £1 so even better than my Farmfoods suggestion you could pick up three single tins for £1.50 if you use multiple emails for vouchers! Won't let me print it from phone though says need use computer.

+1.... It's pole & line caught too

If everyone is researching the mercury thing, could we not have some links/sources here so we don't all end up doing the same work? Similarly, if this fish is full of heavy metal ( \m/ ) can we point to some that isn't?

​Theres an article on Men's Health that is quite interesting and gives formula to work out a safe weekly tuna intake (need some patience I haven't worked mind out yet!). This is because mercury is in all fish and fish is generally safe but can become unsafe when it's used in excess - like everything else really. It's never been advised not to eat tuna at all what is advised is not to binge on tuna or use it excessively as a pre/post workout protein along with using it as a snack throughout the day as many people do as that's when things can become unsafe. Some articles state a few tins a day is safe but think this one was suggesting a few a week. Scaremongering is likely coming from Vegans rather than people actually worrying about it!

http://www.menshealth.com/nutrition/eating-tuna-every-day-safe

Formula info towards bottom of page. I finally calculated mine based on averages as can't really be specific without precise details and my safe limit ranges from 2-6 cans per week so I'm glad that's as wild as I get anyway as I don't overdose on tuna to get buff or anything daft like that. Once you add in other fish it's probably best to stick with the lower reading so one can every two days I'd say is safe for me rather than two every one day!!

Also I read on one report that fish from Australia and New Zealand is less toxic so guess the levels will vary on source so no exact rule or go to brand to focus on more about having a sensible intake.
