QC health office inspects schools after food poisoning

Quezon City health officials inspected some schools in Quezon City on Friday after 18 students were downed in a food poisoning incident this week.

Radio dzBB's Allan Gatus reported on Friday that health inspection teams asked officials at the schools to submit lists of their food concessionaires.

Once they have the list of food concessionaires, City health officer Dr. Antonietta Enumerable said they will check if these suppliers have sanitary permits.

Enumerable said they want to make sure that concessionaires who sell food in schools adhere to sanitary standards.

The dzBB report cited figures from the city health office indicating that there are some 150 schools in Quezon City.

Earlier this week, at least 18 students of a school were brought to a hospital after complaining of stomach pains and vomiting after eating Java rice for lunch there. - Source: VVP, GMA News
