Hopefully the allergies they mention are pertaining to certain individuals who are susceptible to handling the worms. Can you imagine someone eating them??
It doesn't refer to people eating them. It does refer however to how they are handled. No one in his right mind would eat a fish food. Bloodworms do cause allergies. I suffered a mild case of allergy when I handled bloodworms for the first time.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

At three years old i once grabbed up a water bug and plopped it into my mouth before my mother could intervene. She used to delight in telling all prospective girlfiends about it. All fish foods should be placed where small hands and mouths cannot reach them. Some may have grandkids over for the holidays .

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

Okay, I confess. At five years of age I put a few garden snails on a paper plate (family outing) and proceeded to crush and eat them. My mom grabbed the plate and said, "WHAT are you doing??". I replied that I was "eating appetizers". Thankfully, I have absolutely no memory of this wonderful event!

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

Tell that to my brother. I was helping him set up his new tank, and he got a pack of frozen brine shrimp for his fish. He asked, "so are these like...edible?" to which I responded, "I don't see why they wouldn't be..." and so he proceeded to eat some. They are, apparently, very salty.
