What is this

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I had poached a couple of eggs and began eating my breakfast. At one point, before eating the piece I had on my fork I noticed a "brown spot".   Could not imagine what it was because it did not mirror anything I would expect to see in the white of a poached egg.  Curiosity made me look to see if the "spot" continued on the piece of egg still on my plate where I had cut it from, and I saw that it did.  So I proceeded to break open the rest of that egg white.

What I found looked like a good sized worm !!    Attached are photos (headless from the piece I cut off and almost ate!)  

Can someone confirm if this is in fact a worm, parasite or whatever.   And how it made its way into the egg ??

Wow, I don't know what it is?!   I'm sure someone will come on and have an answer for you.

Oh my heck! I have no idea, never seen anything like that before (and I truly hope I never see it in my breakfast). :sick

 

Hopefully someone else will know.
