Mods deleted it because they wanted to hoard all the mayo. McDs was offering condiment packets for free on Ubereats

Avoid yellowfin tuna, yes maybe it's a more expensive tuna but pound for pound it also has more mercury due to the way we are polluting the oceans these days.

Would there be any health concerns to feed this kind of tuna to kids (under 6?). How much amount and often would be safe?

Also if you find yourself eating canned tuna often you may want try some different canned varieties of smaller fish like herring and mackerel that are lower in mercury. Gold Seal Mediterranean mackerel in olive oil is as good as Rio Mare tuna. But my favorite is the Brunswick Golden smoked kippers, no water or oil added.

I prefer it without the extra calories from the oil.

Crap, didn't realise the one at Amazon was the 85 g version.

I think the 85 g is a snack size.

According to the Loblaws flyer, the 170 g is packed in water. The 85 g is packed in olive oil

tuna has a lot of mercury, a lot! it's however pretty good for protein sources. it would be great if i can eat everyday, but i will die from mercury poisoning which has no cure. 1 can per week is the recommandation

I worked for StarKist Tuna for more than 7 years but that was decades ago. I don't know if much has changed

In fact, I would say it's a blend of Yellowfin and Skipjack rather than just Skipjack. The problem with Yellowfin tuna is that it's larger than Skipjack and usually too high in mercury which is absorbed naturally from the sea environment to be processed on its own. Skipjack, on the other hand, is smaller, has much less mercury content, but is much more costly to clean and process.

The standard procedure is to blend the 2 so that mercury content is brought below the allowable limit and is economically feasible to process. That being said, if labour costs are reduced because the cannery is located in Thailand, it's possible that it's only Skipjack but not likely.

From my point-of-view, the idea that Yellowfin is somehow superior is nothing more than marketing.
