I had bought frozen clams, upon thawing most of them have opened, and when tapped do not close. Do I need to throw them all out or is it fine?
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
The opening/closing guidelines are relevant to live clams.
The ones you have are all frozen (dead) and thus are not subject to those guidelines.
