Dutch prosecutors say they are not investigating a case of apparent cannibalism on a TV show in which presenters seemed to eat tiny pieces of each others' flesh.

The show on BNN, Guinea Pigs, included footage of what appeared to be the surgical removal of tissue from a buttock of presenter Dennis Storm and from the waist of co-host Valerio Zeno.

The hosts described each other's fatty tissue as rubbery and disgusting, and had difficulty swallowing it. BNN says the case was not a hoax. Cannibalism is legal in the Netherlands.
