Antibiotics found in some of the world’s rivers exceed ‘safe’ levels, global study finds – News and events, The University of York

A concern for Bangladeshi freshwater prawn and even shrimp farmers?

Actually a worry for market consumers, exporters and importers.

Recalls have happened in past and EU monitoring has led to bans.

Customers at risk due to ‘confusing’ allergen labelling

Here I am wondering that while we don’t have this problem with shrimp – as they are considered allergens already – would restaurants and food handlers with shrimp on menu just blanket allergen label all food in mitigation to cover potential cross contamination?

With shrimp farming the message here is that child labor and environmentally damaging practices are used.

So are US children (future consumers) getting the raw end of the information?

Responsibly farmed shrimp, from say Ecuador, surely should be trying to change the mindset of current US pediatricians and children.

US foodservice companies supplying schools and educational establishments need to get their fingers out and correct this negativity.

Shrimp are extremely healthy and good source of protein.

Wrong shrimp message going out here to future generations that needs to be corrected.

To suck or not to suck….tales that relate.

Lets apply this to shrimp. Its not prawnographic but in Spain the market sells more of heads-on shrimp that any other offering.

However market research shows that when people eat out in Spain they are not so keen on head sucking. They prefer to do this in the privacy of their own homes. Main reason is risk of getting shrimp all over clothes and fingers.

Heads-on shrimp reflects a quality to discerning seafood markets like that of Spain that there has been no processing of the product and that the quality is of a higher standard.
