  • China - Pork bought at store gives a blue fluorescence - Shanghai


    machine translation -



    A Shanghai resident found the pork she bought was giving off a "blue fluorescence" at night.

    When she went to the bathroom at 11pm, she saw a "vague blue light" in the kitchen. She turned on the light but didn't see anything unusual. When she turned off the light, the blue light re-appeared. She tried to touch the light and found it was emanating from the pork.

    Gu Zhenhua, an officer with the Shanghai Food and Drug Administration, said the pork may have been contaminated by a photobacterium during slaughter, transport or selling. Such a luminescence is also found in fish sometimes because the bacteria originally comes from the sea, Gu said.

    Market watchdog officials in the city said they had received few complaints about "glowing" pork.
