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 Daily Mail quoted.

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.
