Chinese couple’s meat glows blue at night!

A Chinese couple found that the remains of the meat they had just eaten turned blue in colour and glows in the dark.

According to the Global Post website, the couple tucked in to their tasty stir-fry at their home in Sichuan province. It was only after they had hung the remains of the carcass on their kitchen wall for safekeeping that they noticed the meat was emitting a strange, blue glow.
The likely cause is a type of fluorescent bacteria. Last year a number of residents in Changsha city discovered that the pork they had purchased from a supermarket emitted a blue glow at night.

Health officials were called in and were able to establish that the blue light was created from secondary bacterial contamination.
