A heads up for Maine Ave shoppers

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.

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