A Message to Our Customers about the Crisis in Japan

April 1, 2011

With concerns of food safety since the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, Crown Prince would like to assure that our products are safe for consumption.  Here is a personal message from our President, Dustan Hoffman:

As the effects of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan are still unfolding, Crown Prince wants to assure our customers that we are monitoring the situation closely. Be assured that all of the canned seafood from Crown Prince currently on the shelves and in our warehouses was packed prior to the earthquake and therefore safe for consumption.

Crown Prince products do not contain any ingredients derived from Japan.

We have been in close contact with all of our suppliers in the affected region and surrounding areas. Our suppliers and the governments in those countries are monitoring the radiation levels. At this time, the fishing areas have not been affected.

The quality and safety of our products are of the utmost importance to Crown Prince so be assured we will continue to keep a close eye on this situation. If anything changes, we will notify you.

Crown Prince would like to again send our heartfelt thoughts and condolences to the Japanese people.  They have been brave and an inspiration to us all. In the midst of this tragedy they have pulled together as a community and a country in a calm, organized and peaceful manner. What an incredible example of what can be accomplished when we work together as one.

We appreciate your continued trust and patronage.

    FDA: “The great quantity of water in the Pacific Ocean rapidly and effectively dilutes
    radioactive material, so fish and seafood are likely to be unaffected.”

    We know this is not true, and we already read the news about the radioactive Bluefin tuna in the coast of California a year after the disaster (still not under control and contaminating the Northern Hemisphere). This was known a year ago and the information was kept from the public.

    Governments around the world are unable to do much about it so they just raised the “safe” radiation levels at the same time. Only now the Japanese government is apologizing for raising the “safe” radiation levels for children, this is also in the news.
