Why is shrimp mushy
Why should IQF shrimp say "do not thaw under running water"?
Jeff Axelrod commented (thank you very much) that most of the shell has been removed from the Costco IQF shrimp. In this case, "DO NOT GROW UNDER RUNNING WATER" most likely means, if you do you will get "shrimp pulp" some of which will even flow down the drain. The shrimp can ingest the water and become mushy and dissolve. I saw this in our kitchen and tried to erase it from memory.
This also means that the bacteria trapped under the shell are less of a concern.
the original answer / caution regarding safety :
Aside from the fact that the prawns ingest the water, become mushy and can fall apart under running water, could this pose a security problem.
It is possible that the pressure from running water is pushing or squeezing some bacteria, normally found on the outside of the shell (and destroyed), in and under the shell (e.g., between the belly and the shell) where it is are protected from heat and not completely killed when cooking.
Bacteria moving in from outside the meat gave Costco a lot of headache. In the meat case it was pressed mechanically by the needles of the tenderizer. You could also hedge against a similar thing that happens to the shrimp and running water.
If you thaw them in a tight freezer bag submerged in water (even if it's running) it should be safe.
