First cases of anisakis poisoning


The first cases of anisakis poisoning appear after eating frozen fish

Some of you will already know what it is about but... What is anisakis and anisakiasis? Anisakiasis is caused by a nematode worm, a parasite called anisakis. It measures up to three centimeters long and a little less than 0.1 millimeters in diameter and is whitish, almost transparent. This type of worm develops its life in marine mammals such as whales, dolphins and seals, although in its larval phase it is found in fish and crustaceans that consume these species, but which also become part of the human or furry food chain. -barfera. Therefore, in its adult stage it lives in marine mammals, it reproduces inside them and it is the release of its eggs into the sea through feces that causes them to reach the fish that people subsequently feed on. Unlike marine mammals -where the parasite develops completely-, in people and furry animals, parasitization is limited to infection by the larva and does not continue its development inside the digestive system: the organism eliminates it, although previously has suffered the consequences of infection and disease.

Attention Barferos and Furry fish lovers!

At CRU we always recommend freezing food before feeding it to our furry friends. The official recommendation has gone from two to five days for industrial equipment at -20º; For 2-star equipment, like those in many homes, which cannot reach lower temperatures, a minimum of one week is recommended.

At CRU we believe that prevention is better than cure, so if you have space, and especially for fish, we recommend freezing for 12-14 days.
