I recently made a recipe that called for thawing frozen shrimp by running them under cold water. However, I noticed that the IQF tail-on shrimp I buy from Costco state, "DO NOT FORCE THAW UNDER RUNNING WATER".

Why might they add this capitalized warning? Would it be a safety issue or a texture issue?

Why would IQF shrimp say "do not force thaw under running water"?
