Sometimes life gives you lemons. Sometimes it gives you a bad hand of cards.
And sometimes, it gives you worms in your salmon.
TikToker Rachel Lyn found out how common worms in fish are when she saw one wriggling behind the plastic in a package of fresh salmon at a display at the grocery giant Costco.
Lyn shared a short video of the worm in question, grossing out her followers and anyone who happened upon the video.
Some people flinched and said 'Ew,' but the majority of comments on her video were people talking about how common parasites are in fish.
You have bigger worries, others said.
Some people said they'd do better to buy frozen.
People also just avoid eating fish, they say.
Others were more shocked by the price of the salmon, visible near the worm.
Some people tried to put a positive spin on it.
Freezing fish before cooking it, or cooking it for at least 10 minutes at 140F, should kill any worms in the fish, which are, apparently, quite common!
