Nippon.com

Toyama, June 17 (Jiji Press)–Numerous students and preschoolers in the central Japan city of Toyama have developed symptoms such as stomachache in what appears to be a case of mass food poisoning, the city government said Thursday.

Milk served with school lunches is believed to be responsible for the ailments of those affected, sources at a local public health center said. The city government conducted an on-site inspection of the company that produced the milk in question to determine the cause of the apparent food poisoning case.

Affected people are showing symptoms such as diarrhea, stomachache, vomiting and fever, but no one is in serious condition, city officials said.

UK – Major retailers below Campylobacter chicken limit; smaller shops test higher

Food Safety News

None of the top nine retailers in the United Kingdom reported Campylobacter in chicken test results near the FSA limit in the first three months of this year.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) maximum acceptable level is 7 percent of birds with more than 1,000 colony forming units per gram (CFU/g) of Campylobacter.

Tesco was the supermarket that recorded the worst contaminated chicken results with 4 percent of 300 samples above 1,000 CFU/g in the first quarter of 2021 (1Q) which was down from 6 percent in 4Q 2020.

Sainsbury’s performed much better in the latest set of figures covering January to March with around 2 percent of chickens sampled above 1,000 CFU/g compared to 7 percent in 4Q 2020.

Asda reported 1.3 percent tested positive for the highest level of contamination in the latest quarter compared to 1.8 percent in the previous three months.
