He buys Sushi in a store and when he gets home he discovers that it glows in the darkAug 022020
The product could have been contaminated with bioluminescent bacteria or phosphorous-containing substances.
A Thai family who bought three boxes of 'sushi' on Monday at a store discovered to their amazement that one of the portions glowed in the dark, local media reports.
Upon arriving home in the central Nonthaburi city, Arun Yolpaiboon, 58, and his son Natthanai Kanchanawasa, 21, noticed a bluish glow in one of the shrimp included in the bite.
Surprised, they invited their neighbors to witness the curious effect and then shared a video on social media in hopes of finding an explanation.
Commenting on the post, a biology professor at Chulalongkorn University, Jessada Denduangboripant, noted that the product may have acquired gloss as a result of being infected by bioluminescent bacteria.
Other possibilities are that the shrimp had eaten some kind of shiny plankton or that the product had been contaminated by a phosphorous-containing substance added as a flavoring.
Finally, he urged not to consume 'sushi' to avoid the risk of unpleasant consequences such as diarrhea or food poisoning.
