CHICKEN OF THE SEA DOWNSIZES PINK SALMON -- BUT NOT THE PRICE!

by Vanessa Cortez, staff writer  [October 8, 2009]

 

 

[WeeklyUniverse.com]  Savvy shoppers smelled something fishy this summer when Chicken of the Sea downsized its "Chunk Style Pink Salmon in Water -- Skinless Boneless" from 6 oz cans to 5 oz cans -- with no discernable drop in prices!

 

 

Less savvy shoppers presumably went on buying the greedy mermaid's product, blissfully unaware that they were now paying more for less!

This price hit comes in the midst of America's greatest economic recession since the Great Depression of the 1930s!

Pink salmon is believed to contain heart-heathful Omega 3 Essential Fatty Acids. By buying and eating less pink salmon per can, Americans will increase their chances of heart and eye diseases, and all manner of other illnesses that Omega 3 EFA's combat!
