Thank you -- I don't have a great sense of smell (although ammonia is pretty distinctive), so it helps to have a visual test too.

Is it okay to eat a lobster claw that fell off?

I ordered six live lobsters by mail, which arrived on Saturday. I'm planning to eat them tomorrow (with friends), so I wrapped them in newspaper and put them in the fridge.

One is particularly feisty, and as I was repositioning him in the fridge, he lost a claw.

Is it safe to eat a claw that has fallen off? If so, is there a time limit by which it should be eaten (after the time it fell off)?
