120 Chinese school children food poisoned


Suspected food poisoning is believed to be the reason 120 Chinese school children have been hospitalised with vomiting.

Some 120 children are suffering suspected food poisoning in China’s south-eastern province of Jiangxi.

Thirty-six children from three kindergartens in the city of Nanchang were admitted to hospital, 62 were put under medical observation and 22 were discharged, the Xinhua news agency says, citing a local education department.

The children were admitted after vomiting and complaining of abdominal pains following their return home from school on Tuesday afternoon.

In 2008, six children died and hundreds of thousands of others became ill after drinking melamine-tainted milk.
