These shrimp taste a little funny

I am a big fan of wild American shrimp.  I came across an article recently that gave me a really good reason to remain a big fan of wild American shrimp.  It seems that some farm raised shrimp imported from Vietnam are fed a robust diet that includes regular servings of pig feces.  While I guess wild shrimp might ingest tiny amounts of fish, whale, porpoise and shrimp feces, I would imagine regular repasts of pig feces are off the menu.  Uhhh!

I live in Seattle and love telling stories about Americans, the places where they work and the things that they make.
