      Uhhhh...hate to tell you this, but its $6.99 EACH (4 oz). Do you really think Safeway would sell anythng that cheap?

        I would suspect cvhound's aren't. The ones I saw were crawling around the tank.

        1. re: wolfe

          Wolfe is correct. The ones at Safeway for $6.99/lb are not live. The lobster tails are frozen or previously frozen and thawed. I think the price is good until Tuesday, 5/12.

          Sorry I left off the per pound. Some of the lobsters are over 3 pounds, I think. I did not see any of the 6+ pounders I have previously bought there.

            Forgot the price, but the lobsters at Marina Foods (supermarket) in San Mateo are from Canada per the sign.

        3. Interesting, down in Los Angeles at the San Gabriel Ranch 99 I saw live "MANE" lobsters (larger ones) for $5.98/lb yesterday. (I'm sure they meant "Maine")

            little do you know that there is little fishing village in Canada called "MANE" - just like in the old days when Japanese products were considered inferior (long time ago) - there was a town in Japan called USA - so things made there could be labelled " made in USA" - I think that was true and not an urban legend? good story anyways!
