Why Does the Bag of Costco Frozen Shrimp Say . . .

JoanN | Mar 5, 2011 01:04 PM

"DO NOT FORCE THAW UNDER COLD RUNNING WATER"?

They say, "TO PROPERLY THAW: Place bag of shrimp overnight in the refrigerator. Drain and use in your favorite recipe."

The bag is 2 pounds. I practically never need 2 pounds of shrimp for one meal. I always thaw however much I need in heavily salted water and it's always just fine.

Any idea why the directive? In bold capital letters, no less.
