Great Value has quality control issues. I was making spaghetti and bought two cans of Great Value tomato paste from my local Walmart. The first can I opened was okay, the second can I opened had mold on the top of the tomato paste. This was an unopened can, I know it was unopened because when I opened the can it kind of hissed like it was releasing air. That was unnatural first off. I don't know what it was releasing, but as soon I lifted the lid I could smell a stench from the can, like something rotten. When I removed the lid there was something white sitting on the top of the tomato paste, figured it was mold when I smelled it. How does this happen? It was in date, it doesn't expire until 2017! I do have pictures of the nasty sauce. I took pictures of it so there's evidence of it and by the time I got to taken the pictures the paste was coming out of the can, I don't know if there was mold throughout but I wasn't going to take my chances so I threw it out. I realize it's a cheap brand, but this is uncalled for. Quality control should prevent this from happening. If it was on the other side of the can it would have ruined the whole meal. It had to have molded before it was sealed and yet it wasn't caught! How could this happen, obviously poor conditions are used during manufacturing process. I will steer clear of Great Value tomato paste, or all Great Value canned food for that matter. If mold could be in a can of paste, what could be in other canned foods produced by this company? I have never seen anything like this and never want to again. It was disgusting!
