Cockroach Eggs Are Incubating In People’s Mouths-Fiction!



Summary of eRumor:

There are several different versions of stories about people who accidentally got infested with roach eggs in their mouths or salivary glands, then experienced a disgusting mouthful of hatched roaches.  Some versions say  a person got infected with the eggs by eating contaminated meat from a fast food restaurant.  Other versions say the eggs have been contracted through licking envelopes.  The stories claim there have been reports on CNN and in the New York Times.

The Truth:

There have been no documented cases of this happening and it has been a common urban legend for quite some time.  No news articles on the infestations have been found on CNN, in the New York Times, or any other legitimate news source.
