SACRAMENTO, CA - Finding a dead worm in your fried fish may be gross, but it's not a health code violation. One Sacramento couple learned this the hard way Monday afternoon at a local fast-food restaurant in Sacramento.

Jessie Pritchett said he and his wife Jonie had been eating their fish platters when his wife found something in her piece of fish.

"She broke the fish and went to put it in her mouth and she saw something that looked like a worm," Pritchett said. "When she pulled the batter back it was a worm, and I don't know how many worms she ate before that one," Pritchett added.

Kelly McCoy, a representative with the Sacramento County Health Department said as long as the worm was dead, there was no health code violation committed. McCoy said the discovery is more of a customer service issue.

On average, the Sacramento County Health Department receives about one complaint a month from restaurant patrons who find dead worms in fish, McCoy said.

Problems can arise if the fish is not properly cooked and the worms are still alive. If a person eats a live worm, he can become a host to the parasite. Finding a live worm in cooked fish would show that the fish was not properly cooked, and that would also be considered a violation, McCoy said.

Pritchett said the restaurant gave him a refund, but that didn't settle his stomache. He said when you eat at a restaurant, finding dead worms in food should not be acceptable.

"It shouldn't be normal. It should be a crime for someone to sell fish with worms in it," Pritchett said. "That's ridiculous gross."

The Worms Crawl In

Did you ever think, as a hearse goes by,
That you might be the next to die?
They wrap you up in a big white sheet,
And bury you down about six feet deep

They put you in a big black box,
And cover you up with dirt and rocks,
And all goes well, for about a week,
And then the coffin begins to leak!

The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out,
The worms play pinochle on your snout.
They eat your eyes, they eat your nose,
They eat the jelly between your toes.

A great big worm with rolling eyes,
Crawls in your stomach and out your eyes,
Your stomach turns a slimy green,
And pus pours out like whipping cream.

You spread it on a slice of bread,
And that's what you eat when you are dead.

I make a mean fish chowder every Christmas eve. A year or two ago as I was cutting up a huge (and expensive) slab of cod, I found half a dozen worms in it. Freaked me right out. So I got online and read a little about it and learned that it's not unusual at all for some fish like cod to have worms in it. As part of the processing of fish, they run the fillets over a light table so they can more easily see fish with worms in them and they use tweezers to poke into the fish and yank the worms out. Then they sell the fish. Sometimes they miss some worms. The government doesn't care if fish has parasites in it because the fish is normally cooked. After reading that, I decided I'll never eat sushi.

As for that expensive slab of cod, I had already thrown it away and made a last minute trip to another store to buy some more.

A humpback whale has been put down after becoming stranded in waters off the state's (Western Australia) mid west coast.

The 10-metre, 15 tonne whale beached itself in shallow waters near Jurien Bay a week ago.

The Department of Environment says it used explosives to put down the animal.

The carcass will be buried.

Thats awesome - I've seen a lot of porpoises in the ocean under and around the boat, but never heard of one jumping INTO a boat.
Poor thing was probably scared shitless.

The smashed skull could be easily expertly repaired and mounted. The bears head would be on the wall, fur and all, the skulls are not kept inside a wall mounted trophy.

Sheriff: Family cremated mom on BBQ, kept benefits

Quote:
October 15, 2008

The family of a dead elderly woman cremated her remains on a makeshift barbecue and continued collecting her retirement checks amounting to more than $25,000, authorities in Northern California said. Ramona Allmond's daughter and grandson were arrested Sunday on suspicion of embezzlement, elder abuse and disposing of a body without a permit.

Allmond, 84, likely died of natural causes, though investigators were still trying to determine the exact cause of death, said Tehama County sheriff's Capt. Paul Hosler.

Allmond's daughter, Kathleen Allmond, 50, and Allmond's grandson, Tony Ray, 30, told investigators their relative died in December. They left her body on her bedroom floor for a week before cremating the remains in their backyard fire pit, Hosler said.

Investigators said the two kept collecting Allmond's monthly retirement checks, amounting to more than $25,000. Sheriff's Detective Richard Knox said they may have been trying to honor Allmond's desire to die at home and be cremated.

The two were arrested after Allmond's son grew suspicious about her whereabouts.

Both were in jail in lieu of bail, with arraignment scheduled for Thursday. The sheriff's department said they do not yet have attorneys.
