Freezing canned crab meat (and most canned seafood, meat, etc) leads to structure breakdown once thawed and thus, not uncommon to get a can of nothing more than goo once open - yes, a BIG QUALITY ISSUE... but there are NO GROUNDS for a Major.
Assuming this is SQF, the definition of a major being that it leans towards a food safety issue has no basis for the call here.
I would most certainly challenge the finding and competence of the Auditor because of the lack of knowledge as to the definitions of findings.
