Is Sushi Safe? Giant Tapeworm Linked to Eating Raw Fish Raises Concern

Attention, sushi-lovers: the following may be a bit nauseating even if you’re a self-proclaimed sushi aficionado. Good news: If the raw fish was previously frozen, you’re mostly in the clear, according to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). While freezing doesn’t kill all harmful microorganisms, the FDA recommends freezing and storing the fish at an ambient temperature of -4°F or below for 7 days (total time) although each U.S. state issues its own laws regarding sushi preparation.
