    JDOUGLAS13, just read the article about the concern over shrimp and antibiotics. It is a very scary situation. We eat lots of shrimp, which I usually prepare, but we also eat it out at restaurants.
    We can control what/where we buy the shrimp at groceries, etc. but eating out is 'always' questionable about 'any' foods - that's the scary part!!!

    JDOUGLAS- You are correct about the shrimp from China or Thailand,My husband and I only buy NC Local and Argentine shrimp we always look at the back of packaging where it came from, even though I'm Asian lol but different country.

    jdouglas - definitely agree on being careful about seafood! The EWG (Environmental Working Group) has a guide to what the healthier choices are - (if I can get the link to post correctly...)

    I just saw this article on farmed shrimp from China and Thailand. This is often the stuff sold in the grocery stores for cheaper prices such as B2G3, etc.
