What's more, as a rule, they catch and cook pufferfish, privately known as tikong (additionally called butete or burereng) as their feast.

Pufferfish is a harmful sort of fish usually found in tropical oceans. In any case, in the hands of a gifted cook who realizes how to remove its venomous sacs without defiling the carnal segments of this fish the span of a kid's thumb, it is additionally a delicacy among Cebuanos.

The Casiaos more likely than not eaten inun-unan nga burereng (pufferfish stewed in vinegar) various occasions. In any case, on Tuesday, March 26, everything except one endured nourishment harming in the wake of expending pufferfish stew. It additionally killed the Casiao's five-year-old child.

Maeanwhile, the Casiaos are currently approaching assistance from concerned residents for the full recuperation of their five kids, ages 12 to two, who are presently bound in VSMMC for treatment.

What was the deal?

In light of information assembled by going to doctors of VSMMC, the Casiaos were conceded at the Santa Rosa District Hospital, situated in Barangay Santa Rosa in Olango Island, on Tuesday evening, March 26.

The family griped of spewing, discombobulation, and stomach torment – manifestations of nourishment harming – in the wake of devouring pufferfish they reaped from the oceans around Barangay Pangan-an.
