Default hives fom under cooked sea food mix

"Cooked sea food combo", sold at sam's club frozen, says further cooking required.. I have had it many times in the past.I also realize that every bag is different. Never had a reaction from food like that....It was itchy and like I had no see-em bites, and like a rash in areas above the waist,Put the pink lotion on and they went away over night..I just blanched the mix in the water after boiling the pasta, maybe 2 minutes in the water..did not want them to be rubbery. The mix includes octopus, squid, muscles, tiny shrimp, fake crab logs,(white and orange) anyone have this happen ??

that sounds like a bag of shrimp trawl by-catch...
why would you eat that in the first place?

It's usually good with olive oil and garlic on pasta. Also as a sea food fra diavlo on pasta, or gumbo.

Do you have a history of allergies to shellfish? Sounds like a typical example, albeit not severe...

Thats what i was thinking. IF it was under cooked or bad you would have been in bad shape. I am allergic to percocet and I found out by the same reaction you have described.

It is not uncommon to develop an allergy to shrimp (shellfish) over time. My buddy has this; he used to eat the fresh shrimp we'd get in Mexico all the time. He can't touch them anymore due to now having a bad allergic reaction even eating just one. I've heard similar stories from others.

These processed fish "foods" usually have a mix of several different types of seafood...the formula probably varies due to whatever is available.
I am thinking you do have an allergy to a specific type of fish...probably shellfish. Your reaction is almost exactly like what a friend of mine experiences every time he eats shrimp. No other fish affects him in that way...
Consider yourself lucky your reaction was relatively minor...you may want to speak with your doctor about getting a scrip for some epinephrine(Epi-Pen), in case you have a more severe reaction in the future.

It does say product of CHINA on the bag. Could it be an issue of "handling" I would hate the thought of no more shell fish... what about the cooking part??

I've had it 3 time now over the last 10 yrs and it was always from eating too much shellfish. Blue crabs, then stone crabs, with shrimp and topped it off with some lobster then BAM! Iodine poisoning. Grab the benadryl. Red snapper is also high in iodine.

From someone with food allergies
I ate peanuts my whole life and then one time I got a headache and my throat started doing a funny thing

just came on.. I would start by eating each item alone and in small quanities.

It could be one or all seafood..
Good Luck

You should get checked for allergies. I had eaten shrimp my whole life, then 1 time ,bam, I am am rushing to emergency room (almost didn't make it). No shrimp/shellfish for the last 20 years. If they diagnose allergy you have to be very careful of what you eat. Shrimp in egg rolls pretty common/ also that dip at the party, what is it made with?

That was my first thought, iodine...does that cook out or is that built up from not being fresh??,Or is it just cumlative I did have a fairly large amount. I think I will wait a few days and then do shrimp only...and then a few days later if all goes well, the mix cooked more... and I'll see what happens.

Keep the benadryl handy. An Allergy can come on with a vengenece very quickly.

When I had my first reaction I started getting itchy and my shirt collar was a little snug. I drove from my office to the hospital , about 5 miles. When I pulled up to the door I could barely breath or see, I was so swollen up. One more stop light and I would not have made it. I think I had a warning call a couple of weeks earlier when I had shrimp. Headache and nausea at that time but dismissed it for being bad shrimp.

You may have just had your warning call.

Food and shellfish allergies are usually not from iodine but from specific proteins on the foods.
