A Japanese city has activated an emergency warning system to alert residents to avoid eating locally purchased blowfish, after a mix-up saw toxic parts of the delicacy go on sale. A supermarket in Gamagori in central Japan sold five packages of fugu fish without removing the livers, which can contain a deadly poison. Three of the potentially lethal specimens have been located, but the other two remain at large, local official Koji Takayanagi told Agence France-Presse.
