The Star News reports that eighty-eight pupils of SK Methodist suffered from nausea and stomachache after eating food at their school canteen in Tanjung Rambutan. The school children complained of feeling ill shortly after their morning recess Friday.
State Health, Science and Environment Committee chairman Datuk Tan Chin Meng said the school sent the pupils to the Tanjung Rambutan health clinic from where they were taken to the Ipoh Hospital.
84 of them received outpatient treatment while four have been admitted for observation. They are still investigating the cause of the food poisoning and finding out what they ate.
