Vietnam: Tuna lunch sends 30 more workers to hospital
with food poisoning
A group of 30 workers at Tan Duong Company in Ho Chi
Minh City’s Binh Chanh District were hospitalized for food poisoning
Saturday evening after eating tuna.
This comes after the municipal Department of Health
confirmed last week that spoiled tuna had been a major cause of the
food poisoning suffered by nearly 500 workers in Ho Chi Minh City
between June 11-13.
Tan Duong Company workers had been served a company lunch of tuna
with pineapple, sautéed cucumber and soup before getting sick. A
separate group of workers at the company had eaten meat served with
egg, sautéed cucumber and soup cooked in the same kitchen, but had
not gotten sick.
sick workers complained of itchiness, rashes, headaches and nausea.
authorities are investigating the cause of the problems.
