Why does it say on my pack of dried anchovies "cook before consumption"?

I got this pack of dried anchovies from the Chinese Supermarket. I thought that the fish would be similar to the Icelandic dried fish (and they are). I was just shocked that I have to cook them. The primary reason I bought them is to have something tasty to snack on.

I'd appreciate any explanation. Are they not clean or in harmful when ate not cooked?

May have something to do with how they're processed and they're not quite clean.
But you can make a Korean bean sprout soup with them.
In that video she cleans out the insides of the anchovies and discards the guts.
