More than 60 students from a primary school in Taman Medan, Petaling Jaya got food poisoning and had to be admitted to Hospital Shah Alam last Thursday, according to Majoriti.
It is believed that the food provided by the school under the supplementary meal plan (RMT) is the cause of the food poisoning. Allegedly, all the students had eaten the food provided, and many later showed signs of food poisoning such as vomiting.
Students from Year 1 to Year 6, including those in the Special Education Integration Program (PPKI), who are part of the supplementary meal plan programme were affected.
Many parents brought their children to hospitals and clinics on their own for check-up.
The District Health Office and the Ministry of Education (KPM) has been notified of the issue and an investigation will be made.
The supplementary meal plan came under scrutiny just recently for allegedly serving students with only plain rice and a scoop of gravy in a viral post.
However, later investigations by the KPM found that the picture of the food was not actually from the supplementary meal plan.
