Tuna... yeah, but what’s in it?

Last night, Wife and I cooked tuna steaks and served them on a bed of rocket with mashed potatoes on the side and a good splash of balsamic vinegar. All good and healthy stuff, and very delicious it was, too.

The label on the back of the pack of tuna steaks was funny, though, so I thought I'd share.


So, just be careful next time you buy tuna steaks, especially if you're allergic to fish. Cos, y'know, tuna contains fish.

It's good to know we're not treated like total morons and wrapped up in cotton wool in this country...

You guys in the UK put fish in your tuna?....silliest thing I've heard in weeks. Next thing you're going to tell me is you put meat in your beef.

*shocked and distressed* and there was me thinking tuna was a kind of semi-precious metal.

There's probably nuts in it too...

Thanks for the heads up. I now understand why the tuna seeds I planted didn't sprout.

I should add that there will always be some twat who will try to sue for fish being in fish in the first place.

Oh god, they've had "WARNING: Contains nuts" on packets of KP peanuts for the last 10 years or so. Sigh.

I'm glad to see everyone is as shocked and appalled as I was.

If i remember rightly, Jessica Simpson had a famous moment on her TV show when she asked her hubby what part of the chicken tuna came from. Cos there's a brand of tuna in the US called 'Chicken of the Sea' and it did all confuse the poor attention-junkie.
