|MadSci Network: General Biology|
Hi! I tried to learn more about this unsuccessfully. First off, are the worms live or are they "apparent" structures. Bacon is a cured meat product, i.e., that means that salt and nitrate/nitrite have been added to preserve it. The nitrate/nitrite serves to both prevent botulism and to fix the color. If these are not done fully, I would imagine that left out, that flies and similar animals might in fact lay eggs on these materials and that the worms/maggots are signs of spoilage. But that is my best conjecture based on the limited information presented.
