It has always been my understanding that 'sockeye' salmon is red salmon, not pink salmon. Also, I have had other canned red salmon from Alaska and it was excellent - just one step below buying fresh.
Something was wrong with this salmon. Couldn't tell if it was red or pink salmon, which implies it is not red salmon. There was an unusual amount of water and oil in the can, not a lot, but too much and of an odd consistency - a liquid that does not meld with the salmon, like it didn't come from the salmon.
It has very little taste, except for the 2 out of 8 cans that upset my stomach, those tasted odd rather than bland. I almost never get an upset stomach. There's no swelling of the cans or anything resembling botulism or food poisoning, etc.
It's always possible that this is very very old stock or it was left out in a hot truck/train somewhere along the line but it is not worth any price.
