Live worms on salmon at Byerly's

No more sushi! Only cooking at 145 degrees F for a minimum of 15 seconds can kill these nematodes. Cold smoking process as used to make Lox does not kill this parasite. According to the FDA: 1. Name of the Organism: Anisakis simplex and related worms: Anisakis simplex (herring worm), Pseudoterranova (Phocanema, Terranova) decipiens (cod or seal worm), Contracaecum spp., and Hysterothylacium (Thynnascaris) spp. are anisakid nematodes (roundworms) that have been implicated in human infections caused by the consumption of raw or undercooked seafood. To date, only A. simplex and P. decipiens are reported from human cases in North America. 2. Nature of Acute Disease: Anisakiasis is generally used when referring to the acute disease in humans. Some purists utilize generic names (e.g., contracaeciasis) in referring to the disease, but the majority consider that the name derived from the family is specific enough. The range of clinical features is not dependent on species of anisakid parasite in cases reported to date. 3. Nature of Disease: In North America, anisakiasis is most frequently diagnosed when the affected individual feels a tingling or tickling sensation in the throat and coughs up or manually extracts a nematode. In more severe cases there is acute abdominal pain, much like acute appendicitis accompanied by a nauseous feeling. Symptoms occur from as little as an hour to about 2 weeks after consumption of raw or undercooked seafood. One nematode is the usual number recovered from a patient. With their anterior ends, these larval nematodes from fish or shellfish usually burrow into the wall of the digestive tract to the level of the muscularis mucosae (occasionally they penetrate the intestinal wall completely and are found in the body cavity). They produce a substance that attracts eosinophils and other host white blood cells to the area. The infiltrating host cells form a granuloma in the tissues surrounding the penetrated worm. In the digestive tract lumen, the worm can detach and reattach to other sites on the wall. Anisakids rarely reach full maturity in humans and usually are eliminated spontaneously from the digestive tract lumen within 3 weeks of infection. Penetrated worms that die in the tissues are eventually removed by the host's phagocytic cells. 4. Diagnosis of Human Illness: In cases where the patient vomits or coughs up the worm, the disease may be diagnosed by morphological examination of the nematode. (Ascaris lumbricoides, the large roundworm of humans, is a terrestrial relative of anisakines and sometimes these larvae also crawl up into the throat and nasal passages.) Other cases may require a fiber optic device that allows the attending physician to examine the inside of the stomach and the first part of the small intestine. These devices are equipped with a mechanical forceps that can be used to remove the worm. Other cases are diagnosed upon finding a granulomatous lesion with a worm on laparotomy. A specific radioallergosorbent test has been developed for anasakiasis, but is not yet commercially marketed. 5. Associated Foods: Seafoods are the principal sources of human infections with these larval worms. The adults of A. simplex are found in the stomachs of whales and dolphins. Fertilized eggs from the female parasite pass out of the host with the host's feces. In seawater, the eggs embryonate, developing into larvae that hatch in sea water. These larvae are infective to copepods (minute crustaceans related to shrimp) and other small invertebrates. The larvae grow in the invertebrate and become infective for the next host, a fish or larger invertebrate host such as a squid. The larvae may penetrate through the digestive tract into the muscle of the second host. Some evidence exists that the nematode larvae move from the viscera to the flesh if the fish hosts are not gutted promptly after catching. The life cycles of all the other anisakid genera implicated in human infections are similar. These parasites are known to occur frequently in the flesh of cod, haddock, fluke, pacific salmon.

The transmission of this disease occurs when infective larvae are ingested from fish or squid that humans eat raw or undercooked. In some cases, this infection is treated by removal of the larvae via endoscopy or surgery. http://www.cdc.gov/parasites/anisakiasis/

인쑤씨: common thing in fish that has parasite larva

Kenny Hale: Yep, just put em back... that's great.

A Ghost Without a Past: Eating anything raw is just asking for trouble.

Contro: So this is what we have come to? People thinking they are so high and mighty that everything on the planet is pure and floats on rainbows? The simple fact is there can be parasites, of some kind, in most everything. With fish, cooking at the right temp/time or freezing at the right temp/time will render these parasites harmless. No, you should not eat them raw, but if you remove them, and cook or freeze it for the appropriate time & temp... you'll be fine. Going vegan? The parasites and eggs on fruits and vegetables are much worse. You should ALWAYS wash fruits and vegetables, and you should ALWAYS cook your meats. If you don't wash fruits and vegetable or cook your meats then you are responsible for your own actions. You like Sushi, well... you are stepping up to play parasite roulette. People think, we as a society, are so educated and well informed, that just about anyone will spout any misleading statement and think it is fact without any education or documentation to back up their ignorance.
"I think therefore it is fact" is becoming the new normal. Get a grip. Are we so well off that we have forgot where our food has come from? Nature is nature no matter how much CONTROL you THINK you have. You are a part of nature. Like it or not... if you are reading this then you have eaten parasites at some point your your life. Unlike the millennial MINDSET in this video, and in most of the comments on this page, below are some links to educational documentation to back up what I am saying. "I think therefore I research before I react."

Thank you for posting this video based on ignorance. At least I know where I can actually buy fresh fish.

Brakathor: You wanna be disturbed? Just think of the amount of live worms that were pulled OUT of that salmon before it was shelved with the one or two left behind.

Holly Stanger: That's how you can tell it's fresh

kimmy cho: parasites are in meats ..that's why you cook it

janmichael: How could they say its fresh. Take good look, damn groceries sometimes we've been scammed for sometimes

Kool Aid: K for u dummies that say “it’s normal for it to have parasites”, can we at least agree that they’re not supposed to be that big and that many of them?

jnf1270: Which Byerly's was that?

Val M: That's why people eating sushi fall sick because the fish is not cook and some of them contains bacteria and parasite. I never eat sushi i am affraid and for me it's too dangerous i prefer to eat cook fish or meat.

Odd instagram Occurrences: The worms aren’t bad you just pick them out or just cook them and they die

Richard Quinones: I really hope you notify management that is a dangerous parasite

ChiefGwopp100: Did You Notify The Damn Authorities??

ariel jumawan: Well.. we all know now thats its fresh..

Dat Boi: going up on "Yeuteube"

rydag11: It comes with free bait

Tom Matt: This is somewhat common. Use the knowledge humans have built through thousands of years and cook your meat. If you eat sushi, any respectable restaurant will slice the meat so thin that they can see if there are parasites or not.

bestamerica: '
no problem...
first open package...
washing with clean water and pick up worm out to drain water...
low cooking on the pan or pot...
until full cooking / done finish then eat it...
no no worm in the body

Sebbuz11: You know, most wild fish has parasites, that's why humans cook food. The salmon for sushi should undergo a specific freezing treatment that kills the parasites before it can be eaten raw....
