Live worms found wriggling in fresh salmon purchased from grocery store

Seafood lovers may want to examine their fish very carefully before throwing it on the grill.

A couple from Arizona made a shocking and disgusting discovery when they saw two live worms crawling on the salmon they purchased from Fry’s grocery store.

In a video posted on Facebook, the worms can be seen wriggling on the salmon, which is still completely sealed.

The couple also show their purchase receipt and the label on the salmon package in the video, to offer proof that the product had not expired.

The wormy fish was returned to the store, where the manager apologized to the couple and offered a full refund. The manager said quality control measures would be addressed with the store’s seafood vendor.

The Arizona Department of Environmental Health told local media that parasites can be found in fish occasionally. While officials stated the seafood would be safe to eat if cooked to at least 140-degrees Fahrenheit, it is best to not consume any fish with visible parasites. Instead, dispose of the product and notify the vendor from where it was purchased so they can perform a safety check of their inventory.

Pay close attention to the fish at Fry's before buying

WWII veteran dies 10 days after benefits reinstated

The family of a World War II veteran is fighting the Department of Veteran Affairs over their father’s benefits.
 
The VA cut Joseph Desario’s, 91, benefits because they found him “fit for employment.”
 
Desario was receiving disability benefits for decades before the VA said his condition had improved to the point where he could go out and work.
 
“He was always very proud of the United States,” Desario’s daughter Barbara Bruce said.
 
Bruce said Desario fought severe hearing loss after 36 missions in a bomber over Europe.
 
Desario had applied for an increase in his disability and a letter arrived soon after from the VA saying his hearing had improved and his disability was cut by $600.
 
“My sister and I couldn't believe it because we knew for 40 years he had this hearing loss and it's been difficult for him to function,” Bruce said.
 
Desario fought the change for two years and a follow-up test found him legally deaf. He won his appeal and the VA reinstated his benefits with $25,000 in back payments.
 
“He said that's good news, very good news, best news I've had in a while,” Bruce said.
 
Desario died 10 days later.
 
“It's a sign of a deeply flawed system,” Kelly Sullivan of Community Legal Services of Mid-Florida said.
 
Sullivan is fighting for Desario’s money to go to his daughters.
 
“His daughters are now responsible for picking up the pieces. They're the ones covering his medical bills, the last expenses and the burial expenses,” Sullivan said.
 
Current regulations prohibit Desario’s daughters from getting anything beyond funeral expenses and medical bills.
 
Desario’s daughters said it’s not about the money, but about making sure the VA knows their father deserved better.

Action 9: Sprint customer has sticker shock over phone bill

Korey Handy has been a Sprint customer for a dozen years, so he's used to seeing different fees on his bill. 

When he upgraded his phone and service recently, he got a much bigger bill than expected: $617.

When asked if he had "sticker shock," he said, "That's putting it nicely." 

It looks like Sprint billed Handy twice: Once for his old plan and once for the new one.

Handy said he spoke to three customer service reps and went to a Sprint store in person all in the same day but got nowhere.

"After that, I came home, and I filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau, and I called [Action 9]," he said. 

Action 9’s Jason Stoogenke contacted Sprint and about two hours later, the company took off about $450 from his bill.

Sprint didn’t say why the company didn’t change the bill until Action 9 got involved. 

"Sprint made me feel as if I didn't matter, but you mattered, the media mattered," Handy said.

The Better Business Bureau said more people file complaints about their phone company than anything else by far. They advise that as soon as you see anything fishy on your bill, call their customer service line, go online, do live chat, whatever it takes to get a hold of a representative.

If those avenues do not get results, like they didn't for Handy, contact Action 9.
