You can always rework the unpleasant product by working it in small amounts (20 - 25%) into your pasta sauce.
Working for a commercial food processor years ago, I can tell you that tomato and especially chocolate hides a multitude of sins. You would be surprised what faulty products get added to chocolate or fudge Ice Cream topping and even commercial bbq sauce.
It is too costly to throw the sub-quality product out, so it gets sent to the re-work room for use incorporating into other products.
