The fish additionally thought of as puffer fish, also comprises a poison tens of thousands of times more hazardous than cyanide; its own liver may comprise enough toxin to get rid of five adult men.

The regional health ministry office said Tuesday, Jan. 16, 2018, a supermarket in Gamagori City, Aichi prefecture, sold five packages of assorted fugu meat containing liver, which is toxic and banned.

Three of the potentially lethal specimens have been located, but the other two remain at large, local official Koji Takayanagi said.

Three packages of the risky delicacy have already been located and will be retrieved, but the authorities still don't know where the remaining two are, Takayanagi added.

The fish, known as fugu, is an expensive winter delicacy but requires a license to prepare because of the dangers of mishandling.

Only 30% of chefs who attempt this actually pass and go on to become licensed.

The deadly parts of a Blowfish, called fugu in Japanese, were accidentally sold in a supermarket in Japan.

Eating the toxic parts of the fugu fish can lead to numbness, paralysis, respiratory problems and often an agonizing death while conscious.

The preparation of the fish must be meticulous, as the smallest mistake could result in the death of the diner.

In comparison, around 100 people die in the USA every year from vibrosis, which is a disease linked to the eating of raw oysters and shellfish.

Several people in the country are killed each year because of the incorrect way or rashly trying to cook the fish.

"Where is the enjoyment in eating something that has no risk in it?"
