Addressing the criticism with an update, Allie wrote that it wasn't her "intention to deliberately hurt my family". Unfortunately, I will no longer be able to attend college if I can not come up with the money somehow.

The main intent of the study, researchers wrote, was "to alert parasitologists and medical doctors about the potential danger of human infection with this long tapeworm resulting from consumption of infected salmon imported (on ice) from the Pacific coast of North America and elsewhere". Based on the findings, four species of Pacific salmon are now known to be carriers of the Japanese tapeworm infection namely the chum salmon, pink salmon, masu salmon, and sockeye salmon. More precisely, most of the infections occurring in Russia, South Korea, and Japan were caused by the Japanese broad tapeworm.

This Japanese tapeworm was a parasite previously believed to only infect fish located in or near Asia. "More severe cases may require specialized consultations and complementary analyses, which are costly". But D. latum and related species (including the Japanese tapeworm) can grow up to 30 feet long, according to the CDC. The fish represented in the study were wild, and, as such, "they're going to have parasites, they're out in nature". Though the study suggests that infections by Japanese tapeworm may be much more common in the U.S. than anticipated, there's still "no evidence at all about how common it is", Schaffner said. "We do things that we haven't done before", Schaffner said. That means salmon from the Pacific Ocean coasts in both Asia and America could be risky to people who eat it raw, such as in sushi and sashimi. Agriculture Department. Proper freezing of salmon will kill parasites, too - to 4 degrees below zero for a duration of at least seven days, per CDC guidelines, or frozen solid at 31 below for 15 hours.
