PENANG, July 20 (Bernama) -- Twenty-four pupils of Sekolah Kebangsaan (SK) Tanjung Bungah Monday were rushed to the Penang Hospital after experiencing stomach-ache and diarrhoea.

The school's senior assistant, Kamaruddin Shawal Hamid, said the pupils, aged between 9 and 12, were believed to have had food poisoning after eating chlorine-tainted nasi lemak and chicken rice at the school canteen.

"All the students who had nasi lemak and chicken rice at the canteen showed symptoms of food poisoning around 10am after their break ended," he said when contacted here today.

Kamaruddin said early checks by the school revealed that the food sold at the canteen was tainted with chlorine.

The Health Department had taken samples for tests, he added.
