In general it is recommended to thaw out all foods in the refrigerator. Except the shrimp I buy can be thawed under cold running water if I am going to use immediately.
If you have concerns, I'd get a thermometer for the fridge. After our last refrigerator started to make weird noises, I'd realized there was a day or two when it wasn't maintaining safe temperatures to prevent spoilage.
