Is it still safe to eat my shrimp?

I pulled a bag of frozen, shell-on "EZ-Peel" shrimp from the freezer Thursday night, and put it in the fridge to thaw with the intention of using it for dinner on Friday. I ended up not cooking it Friday or Saturday. Is it still safe to eat tonight, Sunday?

    I think you are ok.

      Right on the edge, but probably fine if you keep your fridge nice and cold. Give them a really good smell, and make sure they're not at all slimy.

        I think they should be fine.

          depends on the temp in your fridge, but i'm sure they're fine, especially if they still smell sweet.

          then again, i am not one of those paranoid about refrigeration.
