Hoang Sy Binh, director of the Department of Health in the Northern Province of Thanh Hoa said that nearly 230 workers of the company in district Hoang Hoa were hospitalized at the local medical clinic with symptoms of convulsive fits, vomiting and bellyaches.

According to some workers, they had complained to the management about the stale and smelly soup that was served to them. However, the management ignored their complaint and within 20 minutes, workers experienced unpleasant symptoms of convulsive fits, vomiting and bellyaches.

Medics feel that the workers will be required to stay in the hospital for a few more days for observation.
