Parasites are organisms that need a living host to survive. They require a host to live and reproduce. Proper cooking and freezing kills most parasites. Parasites come from seafood, wild game, and food processed with contaminated water such as produce.

Prevention

  1. Purchase food from approved, reputable suppliers
  2. Cook food to required minimum internal temperatures
  3. Fish that will be served raw or undercooked must be frozen correctly by the manufacturer
