While eating raw eating raw beef liver may not be everyone's cup of tea, those who enjoy partaking in the culinary escapade will no longer have the option when visiting Japan. As of July 1st, restaurants will no longer be able to serve the slippery delight, due to new laws created, amid fears of E-Coli and Campylobacter. Apparently, the bacteria can only be removed by proper cooking, and has the potential to have higher concentrations in the liver, than some other parts of the meat.
Although raw beef liver isn't my cup of tea, Japanese are now flocking to restaurants to get their final tastes of the soon to be illegal delicacy. Is this going to ruin any of your dining plans in Japan this year?
