Lunchtime discussion thread: Pork and maggots - is this true?!

ok, so I tell my sister I am going to make a pork loin for mom's day and she tells me that this woman, who is a nurse, told her that if you take a pork chop or loin piece and put it in a soda product or alcohol and watch it, maggots will come out of the meat... wft??? I have NEVER heard of this.. the nurse btw said she heard it from her biology prof.

Can ANYONE other than the ppl that will tell me my sister is retarded, if any of this is true or if it's misunderstood and it's actually like you have to leave the meat out and blah, blah ants to butter not margarin kinda test..

This is actually true. It sounds absurd, but try it for yourself. Do it right in the grocery store if you don't want to waste money.

Trichinellosis, also called trichinosis, is caused by eating raw or undercooked meat of animals infected with the larvae of a species of worm called Trichinella. Infection occurs commonly in certain wild carnivorous (meat-eating) animals but may also occur in domestic pigs.

Trichinosis is probably best known as a parasite that humans contract from eating raw or undercooked pork. Through an aggressive program of meat inspection, the incidence of trichinosis in pigs in the United States has been lowered to less than 1%, so it is unlikely (but not impossible) that pork products purchased in your local supermarket will contain Trichinella larvae. Most recent outbreaks of trichinosis in the United States have been traced to pork products from pigs that have not been inspected and that have been slaughtered privately. Because of its low host-specificity, almost any "wild" meat should be considered suspect, and hunters should be careful when preparing meat from their kills. In particular, a number of infections have been traced to contaminated bear meat.

Maggots are the larvae of flies. Unless a fly just landed on your dinner and laid some eggs, you're never going to see maggots emerge from pork.

My grandpa used to tell me that if you put a horsehair in water, it would turn into worm overnight. Turns it out, it won't and neither will maggots come out of pork if you put it in coke.
