Shrimp are very popular on U.S. menus.  But there is concern about how it is produced, mainly in Southeast Asia and some concerns about bycatch in wild-caught shrimp.   Here is a very comprehensive report about shrimp safety from Consumer Reports.  Fortunately I live in North Carolina and only buy wild-caught North Carolina shrimp.  I buy them frozen after asking about how long they keep the thawed shrimp in the case and was told anywhere from 2 -5 days.
