VLADIVOSTOK, July 24 (Itar-Tass) — Twelve children hospitalised with food poisoning from the Mechta (Dream) suburban recreation camp have been discharged from the Nakhodka city hospital. Another 16 children from the camp, located in the Livadiya settlement of the Nakhodka city district, are still staying at hospital in satisfactory condition, but their treatment will continue until the weekend, the doctors told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
The medics specified that 28 children aged from 9 to 14 years and one adult got food poisoning in the Mechta camp. According to a preliminary version, “the source of infection was fresh cucumbers with rotting signs, as well as tomatoes without documents proving their quality.” All the poor quality products were withdrawn from sale.
Experts of the Russian Federal Consumer Rights Protection and Human Health Control Service (Rospotrebnadzor) plan to conduct control purchases of vegetables from the local wholesalers, shops and markets of the region.
The first patients with intestinal infection in the children’s holiday camp Mechta in the Primorsky Territory were registered on July 22. Criminal proceedings were instituted over the mass infection in the children’s recreation camp under the RF Criminal Code “violation of sanitary-epidemiological rules, causing mass poisoning of people through negligence.” The products’ supplier has been found and Rospotrebnadzor officers initiated an administrative investigation against it.
A total of 350 children are holidaying in the camp, no other infection cases have been recorded.
