A heads up for Maine Ave shoppers

  • 2

My husband just drove down to the waterfront to purchase lump crab for dinner at our favorite place, Capt Whites. Because he is usually treated well there -- and because the place usually marks their crab origins clearly -- he didn't inspect the package carefully enough. He noticed it listed Crisfield, Md as the distributor but failed to notice that it was a product of Indonesia. Since it's too far to go back and return it, I at least wanted to give others a heads up to be more careful than we were.

  1. I'm surprised you ever got anything local from Maine Avenue.

      We always get Maryland crab there -- just careless this time.
