27 alleged food poisoning victims in stable condition
by Ofelia C. Empian

The 27 young people who were rushed to the Benguet General Hospital are now in stable condition after suffering from alleged food poisoning during their youth camp in La Trinidad, Benguet recently.

The young people of the Southwest Deanery of the Episcopal Diocese of North Central Philippines, who were having their summer camp in Barangay Bineng, experienced loose bowel movement and fever after eating champorado during their afternoon snack on May 29, according to Dr. Ranilyn Lozañes of BeGH.

The 27 youths were rushed to the BeGH at 7 a.m. the next day.

Lozañes said that there is possible bacterial contamination on the champorado that was cooked and served by the young people themselves.

The Municipal Health Office is currently coordinating with BeGH for the investigation of the incident.

Mayor Romeo Salda said the local government unit will handle the bills of the youths who are now out of the hospital.

Salda said the organizers of the youth camp have decided to end the activity on May 30 from its original schedule of May 31.

Last year, 42 school children of Natubleng, Buguias, Benguet were also hospitalized due to food poisoning allegedly caused by the strawberry-flavored snack they consumed. 

The children from Natubleng Elementary School and Natubleng High School were brought to Atok District Hospital after they experienced severe stomachache after consuming the snack, which was said to be given by a Korean couple, who was linked and later charged for the alleged food poisoning.

The Provincial Health Office reminded the public to properly handle food when preparing them such as washing hands and utensils before cooking and proper storage of the food once it is cooked to avoid food contamination.
