India -Over 100 Wedding Guests Hospitalized Amid Suspected Food Poisoning


Dozens of people were admitted to hospital in India over the weekend after suspected food poisoning at a wedding function on May 17.

The exact numbers remain uncertain, but as many as 135 guests have been hospitalized, the Hindu reported, adding that many of them are children.

The wedding took place in Kalady, in the Malappuram district in Kerala. The following day, many of the guests began experiencing symptoms of diarrhea, vomiting and fever and many were admitted to hospital on May 19, health officials said. No one is said to be in a critical condition.

According to local reports, last Wednesday’s wedding wasn’t the only mass food poisoning incident last week. Roughly 60 guests at a wedding in a neighboring district, including a pregnant woman, were hospitalized on Sunday afternoon due to food poisoning, which the guests claim was caused by a fish curry.
