You Can Try A Little Heat to Reveal the Hidden Label

This is assuming the tin of pellets is now upside-down so you can see the labels on the underside of the tin. Please note that patience and a delicate touch are the keys for getting this to work.

Start by prying-up just the very corner of the label on top with your fingers--just enough to get it started--don't try to remove it yet. Then get a blow dryer and blow just a little bit of heated air across the top label that's covering the other one underneath. The top label should, unless they're just hopelessly glued together, come off in your fingers as you pull it the rest of the way off while still applying a little heat. Then you can read the writing that was hidden on the label that's attached directly to the tin. That usually works for me. If you use too much heat, though, it will probably mess up both labels beyond legibility.

BTW, if this is so obvious that it comes across as an insult to your intelligence, you have my sincerest apologies!
