Blood worm in frozen daphnia?

MsMarvel

Yesterday I purchased Hikari frozen daphnia and thawed a cube to feed to my tank. I noticed in it what appeared to be a few small bloodworms and one that looked a bit darker. I have Hikari frozen blood worms and I have never had an issue with their quality before, but since it was my first time feeding frozen daphnia I decided to throw that one away and get a second opinion on whether it would have been safe before I go ahead and try thawing another.

Here are the photos of the thawed daphnia cube:

This should be safe, I occasionally have bloodworms show up in my other frozen food as well.

I just noticed that today myself. I wouldnt worry, I fed it to my fish.

Its like getting a curly fry in your order of regular fries. Fish are happy to have a bonus worm. Fish food packaging facilities don't have to worry about allergens and cross contamination as much as well id imagine.

Okay thank you all for the replies. I will go ahead and feed it next time :)
