This will make crabby people smile

TIMONIUM, Md. (AP) - September 5, 2012

A new record is being claimed for the world's largest crabcake.

The 300-pound monster was served at the Maryland State Fair over the weekend by Handy International.

The record still has to be certified by the Guinness people.

The company set the previous crabcake record with a 253-pounder in 2009.

The latest giant crabcake benefits the Special Olympics and the Maryland 4-H Foundation.

About 200 pounds of crab meat along with eggs, breading and seasoning went into the crabcake.

That's nearly 1,600 crabs.
