Shrimp farms in Asia are loaded with diseases. Tons of antibiotics are used to combat bacteria and viruses. Chloramphenicol is banned in the US but still widely used in shrimp farms. It has been linked to Human aplastic anemia (lethal blood disorder) and other neurological reactions. The FDA only inspects 1-2% of the ALL seafood that comes across our border. Plus cheap Asian shrimp may contain high levels of PCB’s, which are known carcinogens. We only eat this stuff once in a while, image the people who work in these farms everyday. 

Our shrimp is totally a chemical free, antibiotic free product and low density raised. It is called the Right Choice Shrimp.

Herb Marinated Wild Coho Salmon Filets          $14 lb
