At 8 am Tuesday, these workers, who were suffering abdomen pain, diarrhea, and fever, were hospitalized at the Ben Luc General Hospital.
Many of them said they had developed food poisoning symptoms the night before but they tried to go to work this morning.
Duong Kim Tu said, “I suffered belly pain and fever last night, at about 9 pm. My condition got worse later. However, I tried to go to work.”
The company used its vans to bring Tu and other workers to the hospital.
They had eaten cooked rice, braised pork, fried bluefish and cooked okra for their noon meal at the company’s canteen on Monday – the day before.
After examination and testing patients, doctors at the hospital said they could have suffered from food poisoning.
Many of the victims have received continuous fluid transfusion.
By this noon, 27 workers still remain at the hospital while others have been transferred to other clinics for further treatment.
Local concerned agencies are coordinating with the company to investigate the cause.
