There had been many reports associated with eating raw or undercooked salmon for as early as 1980s. In the fall of 1980 there were 36 known cases of diphyllobothriasis on the East Coast attributed to raw salmon. In the same year, the CDC issued an advisory after four medical doctors in Los Angeles acquired tapeworms from salmon sushi. In 1984, 17 people in the aptly named village of King Salmon, Alaska acquired tapeworms from eating salmon ceviche prepared from a recipe supplied by a visitor from California.
