‘Raw salmon is my snack of choice, I like the texture and it never made me ill’

A woman ignored the risks of getting parasites and ate fillets of raw salmon straight out of a packet from supermarkets.

Aggie Waller, from Harrogate, North Yorkshire, is obsessed with eating raw fish and admitted that fresh salmon is her "snack of choice".

She went viral on TikTok after showing herself opening a packet of Scottish salmon fillets and ripping a chunk of it on a public transport.

"Anyone else or am I a wrongen?" she asked.

"Just missing the soya sauce. Banging."

The video reached more than two million views, leaving many people grossed out when they watched her eating the non-sashimi grade fish.

Raw salmon is a known source of parasites and in particular tapeworm, which can develop from bacteria and grow up to 39 feet long.

The 18-year-old said her raw salmon-eating habits are regular and explained that she was fed raw fish as a child by her dad.

Her friends and family laugh it off as a quirk but many online expressed their shock and horror after seeing the viral video.

One person commented: "The salmon you get for sushi is specifically treated for parasites so it’s safe.

"You shouldn’t just eat any random cut of salmon they will be filled with parasites that can have a drastic effect on your health and can live inside you for years."

Another said: "Get some worm tablets asap".

Aggie said: "I take the comments on the chin but it's the same thing over again and it's getting boring now."

She started eating raw salmon in 2019 and has never looked back.

"My friend and I would walk to the shop to buy our snacks as you do when you're 15 and that was my snack of choice.

Aggie admitted that she "definitely has worms" but doesn't intend to stop eating the bizarre snack.

"I like the texture of the raw salmon in my mouth and it’s never made me ill eating it despite knowing, since I started eating, the health risks."
