Food poisoning

Food poisoning incidents were reported in Gujarat’s Surendranagar and Jasdan. More than 30 people were affected in Surendranagar, including children, and 400 people in Rajkot fell ill.

A large number of people attended a wedding ceremony in Rojasar village in Surendranagar’s Limbdi taluka on May 11. After feasting at the reception, about 30 people, including children, needed medical attention.

As a result, the children were rushed to the Ranagadh primary health centre in Limbdi for immediate treatment.

According to preliminary information, currently, all the children are reported to be in good health. It is believed that food poisoning occurred due to the consumption of some food items at the wedding ceremony.

The health department team was also informed about the matter, and further investigation was taken up. A team of doctors and nursing staff was also kept on standby after the incident.
