    Hi all,

    Hi,

    Yesterday, I was at J Fresh Market (2411 S Wallace, Chicago). They had a large tank of lobsters selling at $7.99 per pound.

    They also were selling recently died lobsters for $3. I don't know if it was $3 per pound or simply $3.

    I was not going home directly or I might have bought lobsters.

    Regards,
    Cathy2

    You do not want to purchase a dead Maine lobster.
    The innards decay very quickly.
    In my opinion there is a reason for dietary Laws that prohibit the eating of fish without scales. They decay quite quickly once dead and will make you ill. Today we have refrigeration but one still must be careful. The ‘smell test’ is probably your best defense.
    Shell fish must be sold with a Harvest and Ship Date.
    Example, Saturday I purchased 9 soft shells, previously the same source, all nine were excellent and some were alive and moving. These had no movement but i purchased anyway. Upon cleaning the ‘Smell test’ identified 2 that maybe had a faint off wisp. They were discarded. We ate the other seven, excellent and no one was ill.

    BTW $7.99 is a very good price!
    What was the size?

    1 to 1.25 pounds according to their label.

    I've gotten the $7.99 lobsters at Park to Shop, both the Wallace Street and newly converted Archer Ave locations, a couple of times in recent weeks. These have been way better than usual cheapie Chinatown lobsters - very lively, hard shell and packed with meat. I probably got more than two cups of meat from two 1.25 pounders yesterday. Very tasty.
