Another reason I don't eat seafood...

CHICAGO, Illinois (AP) -- A man who contends he got a 9-foot tapeworm after eating undercooked fish has sued a Chicago restaurant.

In the lawsuit filed Monday, Anthony Franz said he ordered salmon salad for lunch from Shaw's Crab House in 2006 and fell violently ill. He later passed the giant parasite, which a pathologist determined came from undercooked fish, such as salmon.

Franz's lawsuit seeks $100,000 from Shaw's and its parent company, Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises, contending the restaurant's staff was negligent in serving him improperly cooked fish.

But Carrol Symank, vice president of food safety for Lettuce Entertain You, said the tapeworm didn't come from Shaw's.

"We have done a thorough investigation, and we're confident the restaurant is not the source," he said.

According to the Web site mayoclinic.com, tapeworms can measure up to 50 feet long.

$100,000 isn't enough money for having to "pass" a nine foot tapeworm. Not even close.

Also, a civil suit has a lesser standard of proof.


The burden of proof in civil cases is known as the preponderance of the evidence, which means that the evidence proves that the claim more likely than not occurred.

If a doc is going to say the timing was right it could happen.

there is no way to tell. I find it hard to believe he hasn't eaten any fish since then. plus getting it from fish is not as common as getting one from undercooked beef or pork.

did you know that the symbol for doctors and medicine in general is two "snakes" around a stick. the snakes are actually representing worms. back in the old days when everyone and there mother had a tape worm you would grab the head of the worm weather it was coming out of your mouth, butt or skin and wrap it around the stick. slowly to pull it out. and it would not always be in one day. i guess ever since then it has been the symbol of doctors or someone to get giant worms out of your ass.

sashimi is raw fish alone. sushi is rice with raw fish on top of it. (or other items) both very tasty.

only in america is sushi what you think it is. In Japan, sushi is nothing more than seasoned rice with sprinkled nori(seaweed).
