Food Poisoning Hospitalises Over 400 In Vietnam

On Friday, four hundred eighty-seven people were admitted to a hospital in Vietnam’s southern province of Dong Nai after eating bread sold by a local eatery.

According to the media, 19 cases had recovered and returned home.

Meanwhile, two cases are in critical condition while others are recovering with less severe symptoms of suspected food poisoning.

Vietnam’s food safety department under the health ministry has ordered an investigation into the case.

On April 30, the Vietnamese bread eatery Bang, on Tran Quang Dieu Street in Long Khanh, sold 1,100 loaves of bread.

The next day, many of its customers developed food poisoning symptoms of vomiting, diarrhoea, fever, or abdominal pain, the report said.

The eatery was closed and suspended for further investigation.
