While the man's run-in with a slithering worm burrowing inside him isn't normal, neither was his diet, really: USA Today reports he's quite fond of salmon sushi, having eaten it every day.
In service to no one's piece of mind, Banh recalled a study from last year, in which the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found Alaskan salmon infected by Japanese tapeworm parasites. CNN reported that the initial outbreak was believed to only affect fish in Asia, but it subsequently spread to Alaska.
The man is apparently fine, although he's probably reconsidered his salmon-heavy diet. Banh, for his part, says it's fine to still eat sushi, but stresses that all food can pose a threat to your health, Tide Pods notwithstanding.
