Panicked authorities in the city of Gamagori are attempting to track down customers who bought five packages of the incorrectly prepared fugu fish.

Three packages of the risky delicacy have already been located and will be retrieved, but the authorities still don't know where the remaining two are, Takayanagi added.

Toshiharu Hata, a fugu wholesaler in Japan previously told CNN it is traditionally served as transparent paper-thin strips on porcelain pates. But the fish's skin, intestines, ovaries, and liver contain the poison tetrodotoxin, which is 1,200 times deadlier than cyanide.

Three of the five packets sold have so far been found and no one is believed to have been harmed, but concerns are growing over two packets that remain missing.
