    I think you are right if the bag smelled horrible. Contact the seller and make some noise.

    Pretty sure Im not happy. Granted YES i wasnt around till about 5 hours after the package arrived, but it did not sit outside. and Well thats my fault, but a rotting shrimp the size of a pep shrimp in the bag. NOT cool.

    That's disgusting! But yeah, you should have had someone take it out before you got home :-/ But still, nasty!
