Went into Whole Foods today because I wanted fish. I didnt want to go to a scetchy place where I didnt know what the quality would be. Cod fillets were on sale so I took 1.5 lbs. Got home and started taking the bones out and noticed a strange curly thing on the surface. Picked it up and threw it away. Then I noticed another curly thing in the fish. Cut into the fish and pulled it out. IT WAS MOVING! Hit the internet for more info. Turns out it is a Cod worm. They occur rarely and can be prevented if you either A. look at the fish and see there are worms on it, or B. hold the fish to the light and see worms inside (called Candling). Candling is not Whole Foods responsibility but you would think you a least look at the fish when you are putting it in the display. There were at least three worms on the outside and I dont know how many on the inside. I was refunded the money for the fish but that doesnt really make up for the experience.
