Tablets found in fish worry consumer

A LOCAL branch of a South Korean-based supermarket sent samples of its fish to be tested yesterday after unidentified brown tablets were found by a consumer in yellow croakers purchased at the market.

The customer, Jiang Jiechun, said she was shocked when she went to cook the yellow croakers bought at the E-Mart on Linping Road, Hongkou District, on Saturday because four of her six croakers had the brown tablets in their stomachs.

Jiang posted a picture of the four fishes on Weibo yesterday, and they were reposted thousands of times. "I don't know if they're drugs. If they are, I need to know if they're harmful to health," Jiang said yesterday.

"I've been shopping there for a quite a while but have never seen such a thing," Jiang said. "I need an explanation."

The supermarket said the tablets were fish feed, but it was unclear why their stomachs were full.

"We've sent it for a check and the results should come out in two days," said Lu Jun, a director of E-Mart. "The tablets should be fish feed which hadn't been digested by the fishes," Lu said.
