LAO CAI (VNS)— Dried fish samples taken after a food poisoning outbreak in northern Lao Cai Province revealed histamine content 49 times higher than the legal limit, according to the provincial Department of Safety and Food Hygiene on Monday.

In mid-September, some residents who ate dried fish were hospitalised with allergy symptoms, digestive disorders and vomiting.

Histamine is involved in local immune responses. It also regulates physiological functions in the gut and acts as a neurotransmitter. — VNS
