Hong Kong – School meals halted after food poisoning scare, leaving 100,000 kids without lunch

The Standard

Luncheon Star, a subsidiary of fast food chain Café de Coral, said on Thursday it will suspend its lunchbox service for schools on Monday and Tuesday next week following reports of students falling ill after consuming food provided by the company.

Reports suggested that up to 100,000 students from some 200 schools will be affected by the move.

Luncheon Star said in a statement it will review its operation and disinfect its food factories, while the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department said it has inspected the firm’s factories in Sha Tin and Yuen Long and has launched a prosecution regarding alleged improper maintenance at the latter.
