I think you're adviced not to eat any shell fish at all due to the risk of contimation. But I guess if they've been cooked in boiling watre it should be okay.

sorry for appalling typos and spelling!!!

if they aren't open then don't eat them, that's the golden rule

hi aprilgirl they say avoid shell fish although I believe you can eat things such as prawns as long as they are thoroughly cooked and hot...tbh to be safe I would avoid them and go for a safe fish like, cod, salmon etc..

My midwife said I could eat "posh" prawns. I can only assume she meant M&S not your pint of prawns at the seaside!
Basic rule seemed to be not to eat anything that was a bottom feeder as they could have consumed anything lying on the seabed ...... luvverly
