PUNE: As many as 15 employees, including officers, of Greaves Cotton Limited and the Premium Energy Transmission Unit at Akurdi, were hospitalised

after suspected food poisoning on Friday. The employees reportedly consumed ‘poha’ (puffed rice) provided at the office canteen.

The employees suffered from vomiting and diarrhoea. Doctors at the Lokmanya hospital in Nigdi said on Sunday that the patients are out of danger. “The employees started getting ill after eating the breakfast in the canteen. They were first treated by the doctors at the company. When they did not improve, they were moved here,” said Parag Modak of the Lokmanya hospital. He added that more than 50 people are likely to have consumed the breakfast on Friday.

Dinesh Shaligram, personnel manager of Greaves Cotton Limited and the Premium Energy Transmission Unit said, “Everyone in the company, including me had the ‘poha’ on Friday. But, I am fine. Thus, this may not be a case of food poisoning. We are trying to find out
exactly what happened.”
