LUMUT: One hundred and fifty-five National Service (NS) trainees at the Teluk Rubiah camp here came down with food poisoning Thursday and were rushed to the Seri Manjung Hospital.

They were brought to the hospital at 7.20am after suffering from stomach ache, diarrhoea and vomiting following a meal of chicken chop at the canteen of the camp.

A hospital spokesman said most of the trainees had been sent back to the camp after treatment but eight were warded.

The camp commandant, Commander K. Kannan, when contacted, declined to give any statement on the incident and asked the media to contact the NS headquarters in Kuala Lumpur for information.

Manjung police chief ACP Mohd Jamil Osman, when contacted, said police had yet to receive any report on the incident from the Seri Manjung Hospital or the management of the Teluk Rubiah camp. -- Bernama
