I read the threads here about finding worms in rice.
I had found a worm in jasmine rice
a few months ago. Since then, I have been adamant about RINSING the rice beforehand...
What other foods should be rinsed or stored properly to remove/avoid vermin?
The reason I ask: I bought a can of water chestnuts
yesterday and as I was chopping them up, I found a different type of much larger worm
. This was quite shocking to me as I only knew water chestnuts could have microscopic parasites like tape worms (for which a lot of people say to blanch them first). Caution: image attached
Are these types of "findings" worth reporting to a grocery store or manufacturer, or I should I just accept the fact that we ingest these little guys all the time?
