The bride, known only as Lau from Sri Impian near here, said she and her husband, Chow, from Paroi New Village, had ordered food for their wedding eve dinner on Saturday from the same caterer.

“We had over 200 guests. Almost all suffered from food poisoning,” she said.

Lau said both she and her mother, and Chow and his father were not affected as they did not consume the food. The dishes included fried pork, yong tau foo, rice, vegetables and curry puffs.

“My mother and I were busy serving the guests and had no time to eat. It was the same with my husband and his father.”

Lau said her father began purging and vomiting after the dinner and his condition deteriorated the next day.

“My father was admitted to hospital on Monday as his condition did not improve. He died on Tuesday morning and we were told it was due to a heart attack.”
