Phillips Crab Meat is from the blue swimming crab (portunus- spp). The crabs are harvested from the tropical waters of Southeast Asia, cooked, hand-picked and pasteurized at Phillips' own crab processing plants under the strictest quality control. The result: virtually shell-free, sweet crab meat that has a shelf life of eighteen months in the black metal can and one year under proper refrigeration. Phillips Crab Meat is available year round in five grades: colossal, jumbo lump, backfin, special and claw. Available in 1 lb. cans.
• Phillips Pasteurized Crab Meat is Wild Caught
• Phillips Pasteurized Crab Meat is put through a 5 point Quality Control Inspection (mini plant, main plant, pre-pasteurization, post-pasteurization and when the product arrives in USA)
• Phillips Pasteurized Crab Meat has a 18 month shelf life; under proper refrigeration
