I am afraid to eat clams because they may have been cooked with ones that do not open. Is this a valid concern?

It makes no difference. Yes, they are cooked with ones that don't open. It's sort of how the chef can tell which ones are good to eat. Mussels, clams, all of them. The ones that don't open are discarded. That's just how it works.

If a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, then that makes me a burning truck filled with TNT hurtling through a rocket fuel depot.

It isn't a big deal. Just discard the unopen ones. Did you tap them before cooking to see any that didn't CLOSE?? Those should have been discarded before cooking!

I don't know a little about everything, but I do know a lot about some things!
