I cannot conceive of how it is an option for anyone to eat RAW FISH that they don't know how fresh it is. Especially if it comes pre-packaged so you don't even know how long ago it was cut and put together.
Guess I'll stick to real sushi from a decent restaurant. Which reminds me, syrupy...d'you ever get to downtown Detroit at all? Stop by Fishbones,
right around the corner from the Greektown casino. They not only have the best Cajun food I've had in Michigan, they do sushi that will make your mouth do a happy dance after eating pre-packaged stuff from Wal-Mart. Of course, your mouth will also reach up and slap you across the face if you try to eat Wal-Mart sushi again, but at least you'll understand the instinctive horror most of us feel when you mentioned it.
You've gotta be careful with sushi in Michigan...we're a long flight from anything like a coast, and most places don't fly fresh in every day. I would have to assume Wal-Mart of all places makes theirs in some central location and then ships it nationwide, and the original fish more than likely is farm-grown in China. I would not be willing to take that chance.
