TRÀ VINH — Dozens of workers at a company in southern Trà Vinh Province were hospitalised yesterday morning with suspected food poisoning.
As of 10:30am, more than 50 workers from Việt Trần Ltd were transported to Trà Vinh General Hospital with symptoms such as nausea, stomach ache and diarrhea.
Initial investigations revealed that the workers ate a meal at the company’s canteen yesterday afternoon before beginning their over-time work.
Việt Trần Company is involved in manufacturing and exporting products such as ink film for fax machines, barcode ribbons and printer ribbons at Long Đức Industrial Zone in the province’s Trà Vinh City.
The meals the workers ate the day before were the likely cause of a mass food-poisoning incident, doctors said.
By 11:30am the same day, all the workers were discharged, having made a full recovery. — VNS
