Not so tricky

Food suppliers hide rising food prices behind shrinking packages, reports Vanessa Ho for the Seattle Big Blog.  “A can of Chicken of the Sea albacore tuna is now packed at 5 ounces, instead of the 6-ounce version still on some shelves, and in some cases, the 5-ounce can costs more than the larger one,” points out the original New York Times report.

Note: As energy prices rise, pressure builds for fishermen and all other food suppliers to hike prices. But the F/V St Jude won’t change the size of its 6-ounce can. And by the way, did you know that it takes about 15 ounces of raw fresh product to fill that 6-ounce St Jude can?
