Hold off on cooking that shrimp you just purchased... at least until you take a good look at the packaging. There’s is a recall from Stop & Shop that might change your dinner plans. I’ve always sort of had this weird thing about raw shrimp anyway. I don’t know if it’s the peeling, the cleaning, or the not knowing if I cooked it long enough, but something about it just doesn’t sit right with me. Not that I won’t eat it, mind you.  

In any case, here is the recall information: 

Stop & Shop is recalling select store brand thawed and frozen cooked shrimp after receiving notification from its supplier of potential for the products to be contaminated with salmonella.
