I accidentally ate maggots!
After thawing out whole wheat spaghetti and not eating it for a several days after, I noticed 2 maggots on my hand(alive) and 2(dead) in the dish I left to soak in the sink afterwards… Will I be okay?
Since writing this post Anonymous may have helped people, but has not within the last 4 days.

Yeah they cant hurt u
yes you wil be fine, if only a little grosed out
worms are actually healthy. i dunno about maggots….. :S
So apparently maggots taste like whole wheat spaghetti, since you didn’t notice them while you were eating.
wtf, how does that happen? were you, like, high or drunk orrr both?

I knew an old lady that swallowed a fly, perhaps she’ll die.
It’s only and old nursery rhyme. I’m sure you will be ok. BUT… if you start to see small bumps growing under the skin around your navel… a doctor can remove those eggs relatively painlessly.
eeewwwwwwww….. im sorry to hear that they blended in with the food… although you will not die from this…. it is pretty gross… glad to hear that they dont have a taste to them… lol.. sorry.. i cant help but laugh at the situation at hand… but you will be ok…
Depends on if they were alive. Its called Myiasis and I only know because I have been researching it for hours now. I just fed my kids a pre packaged ham and half way through the ham we discovered a pile of eggs in it. There is no way they were laid from the oven to the table so they had to be laid somewhere during packaging. Apparently if they were alive your stomach acids wont kill them and they will live in your stomach or intestinal track. You may experience no symptoms or you may experience stomach aches, vomiting or diarrhea. There is no treatment other then letting them pass which may take up to a month. There are many problems that they may cause so i suggest you do what Im doing and research. We just ate them about 8 hours ago and I feel fine but they were eggs so they may need to hatch which can take a few days depending how long ago they were laid. So basically Im not going to sleep for a few days worrying about my kids.
**** dude, a just ate some maggot in me cereal, they were slim and bumpy kind o maggots, hopefully they’ll die in me stomach acids and such, hopefully.
maggots are actually considered delicacy in other countries.
i was eating a brownie, and i think wheat worms where in it! i found these things in them it freaked me out, but thats not the scary part, i ate the batter too! hopefully i didnt eat any actual worms while consuming the batter, but just a pre caution, what should i do?!?!
There were actual live worms in my light bread and my family has eaten it all weekend. We all have diaherrea and me and my daughter have thrown up! Help!!!
try drinking salt water it might kill them
I think i might have ate a moggot what sould i do!!!
call 911 or kill yo self!
The tiny maggots we are with our goulash had been cooked and boiled, so I am sure they were dead. So does that mean we’ll be ok?
