Yep We Still Have Rat Lungworm
An unfortunate case of Rat Lungworm was recently reported in Alaska related to a woman who had vacationed in Hawaii. Please continue to keep your guests informed and updated on proper care for consumption of raw veggies. I have included a few hand outs here that may be useful for posting in kitchens or including in welcome packets. The woman in Alaska is reported to be ok. The bottom line is Rat Lungworm is not going anywhere, but it's not the end of the world, or eating fresh vegetables. The best way to deal with it is to keep people educated on safety and how to avoid getting it. I am including some reference material here to assist. If you have any questions let me know.
