Shrimp is ok as far as i know, but i certainly wouldnt fed this stuff to my hedgies. The ethyoxyquin and BHA has been linked to cancer not to mention it is fish food....you wouldnt feed this to any other small animals, why a hedgie?

I have this rule with anything that I eat... or my pets eat...

If I can't understand the majority of whats listed, its not food.

Most of those are chemicals and compounds that you can barely pronounce. Go with cooked plain shrimp if you really want to ;)
