Using our proprietary technology, we are able to test every single fish for its mercury content. If it doesn’t meet our purity standards we don’t buy it. It still may be a good tuna, but it’s not a Safe Catch tuna.
Our limit for Safe Catch Elite Wild Tuna is ten times (10x) stricter than the FDA mercury action limit. Our limit for Safe Catch Wild Albacore Tuna is two and a half times (2.5x) stricter than the FDA mercury action limit.
About 1 out of 4 tuna tested do not pass our strict purity standards. That's why Safe Catch tests every fish. And we're the only brand that does.
Other canned tunas lose flavor and Omega 3s due to machine processing. We hand pack pure, raw tuna steaks to retain maximum nutrients and then slow cook them to perfection. Other canned tuna companies precook their tuna and use additives and fillers to artificially enhance their fish. At Safe Catch, we don’t add any fillers or additives to our unseasoned products. In fact, besides salt where noted, we don’t add anything at all! Just pure tuna. You will love the amazing, pure flavor of Safe Catch tuna. Just as nature intended.
