A tapeworm lives in the intestines of the host, you cannot get a live worm in the meat, eggs or cysts of parasites are generally rare in meat, and are are one of the most important health risks looked for by meat inspectors and state veterinarians. Live worms are found in fruit and vegetables (including caterpillars) so again, if I were worried about live parasites, it would be from vegetables, not meat.
