Are frozen blood worms safe for Aquarium

Does anyone know if these are ok to use? Do they diseases or parasites?

Hi Spacelord,

Yes, they should be fine; I do thaw the food before feeding. I feed Hikari frozen bloodworms to my fish several times a week and have never had a problem; they too are 'highly sterilized' and are free of bacteria and parasites. It is likely Hikari is packaging the bloodworms for Petco. I also feed freeze-dried Tubifex worms to my fish which are irradiated to kill bacteria and parasites.
