Pink Scallops in Brine
Tasting notes: By far our simplest product, nothing but a pinch of raw sea salt is added to these naturally briny beauts, so you can savor the pleasant and pure unadulterated taste of each petit pink scallop. Like oysters and littleneck clams, pink sea scallops are traditionally eaten whole, so we've chosen to honor that tradition (plus the work that went into harvesting!) by preserving them whole in the tin!
Serve it up: We suggest you purchase one tin to eat very simply, straight from the tin and get intimate with the rich, varied flavor of every part and piece. If you're lucky enough to have another tin on hand, definitely try any of the pasta dishes in our Galley.

Q: Why is there a "California Proposition 65" warning on tins of Wildfish Cannery Pink Scallops in Brine?
A: Under California's Proposition 65 (P65), lead is listed as a chemical known to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm. The P65 level for lead is among the most stringent in the world and much lower than the level required by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration. In fact, it is set at 1,000 times below the level that is known to cause no adverse effect. Lead and other heavy metals are present in ocean environments, and in many if not most cases these levels for lead are below those that require a warning under P65. Still, in some instances there can be doubt, and as a result, in order to ensure compliance with California Proposition 65, Wildfish Cannery provides a warning on its pink scallops.
