FILE - In this Feb. 18, 2015 file photo, meal worms are sorted before being cooked in San Francisco.

The Parma-based agency published a scientific opinion Wednesday on the safety of dried yellow mealworms and gave them a thumbs up. Researchers said the worms, either eaten whole or in powdered form, are a protein-rich snack or ingredient for other foods. (AP Photo/Ben Margot)
