Shrinking from shrimp

(article, Culinate staff)

As Twilight Greenaway recently pointed out on Grist, it's not enough that shrimp are unsustainably farmed; they're also a source of factory-worker abuse. The shrimp processed by these workers are distributed across the U.S. — hence a campaign to get Walmart to drop the product from its shelves.

Meanwhile, more bad food news is trickling in from the 2010 Gulf oil spill, with eyeless shrimp, deformed crabs, and underdeveloped fish turning up in seafood catches.
