Deadly blowfish guts sold at grocery; Japanese city officials send emergency warning

A Japanese City Activated its Emergency Warning System to Stop Residents Eating Poisonous Pufferfish

A Japanese city used its emergency loudspeaker system in an attempt to recall four packages of blowfish meat after discovering a fifth one contained the potentially deadly liver.

The market sold five packages of fish without removing their livers, which can contain a potent neurotoxin.

"We are calling for residents to avoid eating fugu, using Gamagori city's emergency wireless system", he said.

"Three packages will be retrieved today, but we still don't know where the remaining two are".

Japanese officials are using emergency loudspeakers normally reserved for natural disaster alerts to warn residents of the city of Gamagori not to eat potentially deadly fish sold from a local supermarket, The Japan Times reports.

This year's running back class is extremely deep, and Love's lack of idea size may have had him pegged for the middle rounds. In his senior year, Love has a chance to graduate, have a healthy season and be the best running back in college football .

The Asahi Shimbun newspaper reports that the supermarket in question has apologised for the error, insisting it will not sell the fish again. Eating it could potentially end up in paralysis, coma, or death.

Fugu fish or puffer fish is Japan's one of the most expensive winter delicacies, but it can turn deadly if not eaten with caution.

"Health authorities found that the store had been selling the liver of the particular kind of blowfish, called 'yorito fugu, ' or blunthead puffer, for years because it's almost non-toxic, health ministry official Yohei Ohashi said".

The delicacy is so poisonous that the smallest mistake in its preparation can be fatal.

Chefs in Japan require years of training and a special licence if they plan to prepare & serve fugu.
