Damaged canned goods being sold off

This article was originally published in Foodnews

CANNED fruit and fish damaged by the Chilean earthquake is being sold off at a reduced price after insurance companies released the products for sale, FOODNEWS understands, writes Adam Sharpe. One post on networking site Linkedin, placed by an official from Brazilian company, is offering 588 tonnes of canned food in 24-can boxes, comprising 288 tonnes of fish and other seafood and 300 tonnes of canned fruit. "The cans that wrap the products are mixed, but the inner content is fully preserved for human consumption," the author of the post said, claiming that the seller is a "food distribution company in Chile".
