94% of the shrimp available here in the United States are raised on farms in India, Indonesia, and Thailand. To keep up with large production levels these farms use antibiotics to prevent disease. Some of these farms are toxic sewage ponds.
The FDA prohibits the use of antibiotics in shrimp aquaculture, but last year the FDA was only able to test 1% of the imported shrimp.
Consumer Reports recently tested 342 packages of frozen shrimp from 27 cities across the US. Watch the video to find out the results, but be prepared, you may never be able to look at shrimp the same.
