Trichinella spiralis is a parasitic roundworm that causes trichinellosis or trichinosis, a disease that can affect both humans and animals. People can get infected when they ingest raw or undercooked meat from infected animals, usually from wild game, such as bear, or pork products. Symptoms of trichinellosis include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, muscle pain and tenderness, and fever. Treatment is with drugs like albendazole or mebendazole, which can kill the parasite.
