  3. Amy

    Blech!! I cant believe people eat this crap!

      Lots of people on islands eat it, especially in the PI. Lots of people love spam masubi. Cuisine born out of lack of refrigeration.

        You are right! It is actually a luxury to have a fridge in a 3rd world country. It might be gross to most people but they have no time to be picky!

          Yup. People don’t realize just how privileged they are…nor do they realize how cuisine evolves based on social and cultural factors. It’s childish to call other people’s food gross.

      Says the person who probably ate hot dogs this past weekend..

    I remember eating this at my grandparents house. They were in their 20s during the depression.

  5. Leslie

    I ate it then and have not eaten it as an adult.

    I actually like spam once in a while 😉 it’s no worse than canned spaghetti sauce with meat or canned tuna with the squeamish factor to me.
    That said, thanks for sharing the recall. I checked my pantry and I’m in the clear.

    I shouldn’t have too much salt for BP reasons. However, once or twice a year I buy the Turkey variety of Spam. Makes for a quick non messy meal when I’m out fishing.
    I still do like the regular one that’s been around for decades. I just choose the turkey
    variety now when I do go the Spam route.

    If this recall doesn’t affect you, just keep scrolling. No need to bash on taste. I’m sure the H2S team is posting this as a PSA which I’m thankful for since I don’t always watch the news on TV.

  9. Amy

    It’s not the metal I’d be worried about..

  10. Judy Trac

    how do i return it without a receipt?
