Default Crawfish Étouffée question

Wife been cooking for years, and good at it.

There is one brand of tails that turn black every time she uses that brand. They are Louisiana tails, mostly clay ground field crawfish, not prairie crawfish, local to here.

Any explanation to this?

I have no idea why they turn black.
I mostly make a Crawfish Etouffee after a crawfish boil, and use the "extra" bugs.

I assume your crawfish still taste the same.

I was told they are over cooked (boiled) before packaging. Only hear say I really don't know either.

Could it be a preservative they are using?

If that is the case they would be very mushy.

I did a google search and the only useful thing said that maybe it was excess iodine in their diet but the post didn't directly mention crawfish all the other listings were about black mushy insides so didn't think they were relevant.

Did another search and found this:

Some black iron pots will make them do that also.

Normally this is in one of those porcelain lined cast pots.

They aren't mushy, just somewhere between blue and black.
