I found a black lump on snow crab legs that were cooked. Popped it and found a white worm thing with a round mouth on top. Anybody know it?

Got from red lobster and ate little bit. I am scared and want to know if it is a parasite. Please answer. Is it a parasite?

They are Barnacles. They are of the commensal families (communal residence without harm to the host) and feed on organic materials and plankton. They offer no harm to the crab nor the comsumer of the crab.
