This story is interesting and a caution to wash your food before eating it, and your hands after working in the fishtank. While it is possible that apple snails carry rat lungworm, it is highly unlikely that the apple snails that you have purchased from a breeder or pet shop carry the parasite as they have not been exposed to it. Snails harvested from the wild, however, may not be parasite free.
