We had a frig/freezer die during the night. Two bags of very large shrimp were concerned. They are on ice now, but they were probably 70% defrosted when we rescued them. Will it be safe to eat them tonight? Can't I just check to see if they smell like iodine? They are wild shrimp from Whole Foods. Thanks for your help and Go Giants.
