Worms In Canned Sardines Are Kosher

Go ahead and eat that sandwich: It has been decided that the worms that infest canned sardines are kosher.

A parasitologist at the American Museum of Natural History determined through DNA analysis that worms found in canned sardines come from the bodies of the fish, not the intestines.

And that makes all the difference to Jews who keep kosher, according to the Failed Messiah blog.

Kosher or not, we will never look at sardines in quite the same way.
