Worms in My Cherry Tomatoes

Anonymous added on August 17, 2011 | Answered

I found white living worms inside each of my cherry tomatoes. The tomato looks perfectly fine on the outside, but when I cut it open, there is a small white worm moving around on the inside. What is it, and is it harmful? I obviously have been eating them up until yesterday. How do I get rid of these pests? I am so grossed out by what I found. Please HELP!

It sounds like you have tomato pinworm. If you accidentally ate one, you should be fine.
