Upto 120 pre-school children fall ill after eating cake in China

Tainted food has caused 120 children from three kindergartens in Nanchang, Jiangxi province to fall ill.

The case is still under investigation but some believe that the cake served at the kindergartens were to blame.

As of 11.30pm on Tuesday (Sept 5), 120 children had been diagnosed with food poisoning at Jiangxi Provincial Children’s Hospital, the city’s education authority said on Wednesday.

Of those, 36 were hospitalized, 62 were held for observation and 22 who had mild symptoms were sent home after treatment.

Symptoms included vomiting, dizziness and abdominal pain, but no fever.

Feng Shengzhe, a three-year-old boy, was among the sick children. His father, who declined to give his name, said the boy ate a cake on Tuesday afternoon at the kindergarten and started vomiting at around 5pm before dinner.

“More than 40 children in my son’s kindergarten ate the cake, and 10 began vomiting,” the father said.

Lian Qinchen, a three-year-old boy from another kindergarten, also started vomiting at around 5pm on Tuesday after eating a cake at his kindergarten, his mother said. The boy was also hospitalized.

By 4pm on Tuesday, no new cases had showed up, but 32 children remained warded for treatment, according to a statement released by the provincial health authorities.

The health and education departments of the city said they were cooperating with the police, as well as local food and drug authorities, to investigate the incident. Parents suspected that the problem was that the cakes of the same manufacturer were the problem.

“The kindergarten has been buying cakes from a shop which they think are very good,” Feng Shengzhe’s father said. “I really worry about it, and I will take my son out of the kindergarten when he recovers.”

He added that the family will seek compensation from the kindergarten, including medical fees and his loss of income incurred by missing work.
