In brief: No

One would be surprised at the number of "critters' contained in canned foods.
With mass harvesting, and mass production of food stuffs, invariably, insects or stages of insects will be found in the food. With the processing of the food, these additional sources or protein are sterilized, cooked and should not pose an immediate risk to your health. If no symptoms in 12-24 hours consider safe.
