July 7, 2009
The Centre for Health
Protection is investigating two suspected food poisoning cases involving 13
people who ate at two restaurants belonging to the same group.
Two men and a woman
aged 32 to 60 dined at a Jordan restaurant at Woo Sung Street on July 5.
They came down with food poisoning symptoms 22 to 26.5 hours afterwards,
and two sought medical treatment.
On the same day, four men
and six women aged 13 to 76 ate at a restaurant at the junction of
Austin and Nathan Roads. They had similar symptoms 12 to 28 hours after the
meal. Two consulted private doctors.
All the patients are now
in stable condition.

handlers, should observe good personal, food and environmental hygiene to
