What the heck is it?


Almost immediately after opening up some Princes tuna, Butler spotted a "sea creature" she knew wasn't supposed to be in her food. "I opened the top of the lid and saw a purple-y thing, a gut sack or intestine — then I turned it round and pushed it with a fork and saw it looking back at me… It's got like a spiny tail along the bottom," she told the Nottingham Post.



She then (as anyone else would) screamed in horror. She eventually contacted the company, sending them images of the animal, which is thought to be a type of crab. They quickly responded and apologized. Since she kept the creature as evidence, she will send the can (and the critter) to Princes so they can investigate what happened.


So they think it's a type of crab. I wonder if it lost it's legs, or if it never had legs?
Or maybe it's a Fukushima deformation of a sea creature?

It looks like some kind of jellyfish or baby animal. Finding creatures and animal parts in food always freaks me out. I developed a green canned veggie phobia after I saw the frog someone found in a can. And then the spider in Coca-Cola. I know that's OT but I understand things do get in food, they can't see everything at once. All I hope is that we continue to learn from the past about quality control and hopefully continue to improve it.

It looks like some kind of embryonic or larval form of critter.

Some of the article FB comments say "it's cute", it is kinda looking up with it's "eyes". Well, until it turns into:


No really, something the fish ingested and/or digested that wasn't caught during processing. Tuna lay eggs not develop young on the inside. Maybe a parasite. Looks like you can see a mouth or sorts in the front.


Tongue eating fish Cymothoa exigua ?

It's kinda cute. It reminds me of an oyster crab without any appendages.

Gross.

I think I would put it in Fermaldehyde and tell people I used to work in Area-51.

I'd totally keep it as a pet! That is kind of neat!

With that said, Tuna is off the menu forever now

Heh, western people are so pampered. I once got a a fibrous, blue liver or tumor in my KFC and now can't eat it (which likely added a few years to my life), found a rat hair in my Orange Crush when a kid and a mouse head and shoulders in my frozen dinner.. .and microwaved mouse smells indescribably bad from the burnt hair, I'd imagine.

But protein is protein... and bugs are nutritious and they allow a certain percentage of insect and rodent traces in peanut butter, for example ... and much brown cheese popular in Germany was brown due to the cows pooping in the milk the cheese was made from.

Industrial food packaging has rodents and roaches running through everything and it's a credit to the factories and inspectors that they show up ...in a recognizable form, anyway... so rarely.

Think of it as free protein .. .or grow all your own!

eta and I was grossed out by the occasional scale, skin and bone that some tuna cans had... heh. AND I still cannot stomach organs!

I think I'd be anorexic by now if I had experienced those things

I've found a frog in my salad and chomped into a stink-bug in some spinach.
Yuck.

Most likely a species of prawn, just coming out of the egg stage.




Quick photoshop (dem skillz!) pointing out similar formations coming through, but you can see it developing if you look close.


Also, here's a photo I took of one of my shrimps fully berried (egg filled), you can see the eggs in there and just make out some eyes coming out

I got alternative meat not on purpose once.

It's different somehow if you're rummaging for food and you know what you're about to eat. I don't expect dog in my Seven Treasure Chicken in the civilian world, although it's probably more authentic that way.

But maybe you'd be lucky enough to happen upon one of these lovely creatures in your next tuna can?

And it's cooked so. Hmm, cute and delicious(sorry, had too).


I'm a fan of sea food but at the same time know when you eat it you're eating the organs, such as with shrimp you're ingesting that. Noting the digestive organs and feces when not "de-veined" .

What the...

I don't have even the slightest inkling as to what the hell that things. I know one thing for sure, however, and that is if I had the fortune of finding such a mysterious critter in my tuna I would promptly drop it down the back of the nearest unlucky bastards shirt.

Also, reminds me of this:


I... Dropped the screw... In the TUNA!

We all eat some poo every day.
Rat poo in peanut butter, weevil poo in baked goods and all sorts of poo in salads. A lot of it is microscopic, thank goodness.

Good call, looks very similar!

Kinda cute actually hahaa





reply to: butcherguy

Oh and don't forget;

If you don't put down the lid of the toilet when you flush, poo&pee particles WILL disperse in the bathroom and land everywhere, indiscriminate of whether you have to put that toothbrush in your mouth later!
