    I got a frozen duck from the grocery store, and halfway through the cooking process I saw some roundworms. It will be thoroughly cooked but is it safe to eat the meat? AS long as it's well done? Or do I have to throw away a $24 duck?

    Man.....I’d take that back! What kinda store sells that?
    Seriously they should know about it. Give you a full refund. And a whole lot more! The supplier should be notified too. Makes me wonder how many others are out there. :eek:
