Food is essential for healthy living. However, your choice of food and care in preparing the food could make a huge difference to your health. From protozoa to helminths and tapeworms, many parasites can be transmitted via food. Protozoans including Cyclospora cayetanensis, Cryptosporidium spp., Toxoplasma gondii, and Giardia intestinalis are common foodborne parasites in the U.S. Others include tapeworms; Taenia spp and Diphyllobothrium spp., and roundworms such as Anisakis spp. and Trichinella spp. A number of these infectious organisms may also be spread via contaminated soil, water, or contact with an infected person.
Foods regularly implicated in the transmission of these worms include:
- Poorly cooked mollusks, fish and crabs
- Feces-contaminated vegetables
- Poorly cooked meat
- Aquatic plants like watercress
Food workers working in unhygienic cooking environments may also aid transmission.
Depending on the causal organism, food-borne infections might cause a wide range of symptoms. Infections caused by protozoans are commonly associated with gastrointestinal discomforts like diarrhea. Helminthes may cause symptoms including diarrhea, cough, abdominal pain, weight loss, muscle pain, skin lesions, and more depending on the infection burden and parasite. Your physician will advise the appropriate tests and course of treatment as most of these infections are treatable.

“Two friends and I dined here on Sunday, May 9. We had the King Arthur, baked potato, half & half sides, fantasy cake and strawberry shortcake. The meal was great, but as soon as I got home, I felt sick with food poisoning symptoms. Flying to Dallas on an overly long, delayed flight the next day was... miserable to say the least.
Checked the other popular review site and saw a lot of other people experienced the same within the last week.
Really disappointed to see an SF institution operating under subpar conditions.. over Mother’s Day weekend, no less. ”
