Shrimp Containing Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria Found in Canadian Grocery Stores

Global demand for shrimp has exploded in recent decades, worth an estimated $39 billion U.S. and growing. Canada alone imports about $700 million in shrimp every year, with the majority of it coming from countries like India, Vietnam, China and Thailand.
