Philippines- 55 Tarlac IPs now safe after food poisoning

Manila Times

CAMP MACABULOS, Tarlac City: Doctors have declared 55 indigenous peoples (IPs) from Sitio Bethel in Barangay Maruglo, Capas, Tarlac safe from food poisoning, while three others remain in hospital for further observation. Those out of danger were discharged three days after they were confined due to food poisoning from a feeding program by a nongovernment organization (NGO) from Bulacan. Initial investigation showed that 73 IPs ate pork barbeque and lumpiang togue (spring roll with mung bean sprouts), and pork menudo packed in a styrofoam box. At about 4 p.m., they experienced stomach pain, nausea and vomiting, and felt dizzy; barangay (village) officials rushed them to two hospitals.
