A little bit confused.

Hey guys, i happened to purchase raw shrimp yesterday on my way from work but was too exhausted and i accidentally left them out. My question is whether they are still safe to cook and eat.
Thank you in advance.

I would toss them. Seafood will spoil very quickly if left out. When I work with seafood like shrimp, it either sits on a bed of ice or stays in the fridge until ready too cook/eat. Live crawfish and generally clams have to be purged before cooking, so there is some what of an exception. They remain on ice until that process begins.
