STAVROPOL, April 01. /ITAR-TASS/. Sixty people, including 13 children, have been receiving treatment for symptoms of food poisoning in southern Russia's Stavropol region.
Salads bought in a branch of a major supermarket chain were presumed to be the cause of the mass sickness, regional health minister Viktor Mazharov told journalists on Tuesday.
“There is no threat to the lives of the patients, who are being given the necessary treatment, but a number are in a condition of medium seriousness,” Mazharov said.
Presumed incidents of food poisoning were registered in the city of Mineralnye Vody, the town of Georgiyevsk and in the Alexandrov region where 33, 23 and 4 patients were in hospital, respectively, a first group admitted on Saturday.
Inspections are being held at the supermarket where the suspected food was bought, said regional consumer protection deputy director Irina Kovalchuk.
