At least 386 children in a Chinese province were hospitalized last week with suspected Salmonella infections, health officials announced Sunday. The students, who reside in the Meishan City area of Sichuan province, fell ill at the end of last week with symptoms of nausea, vomiting, fatigue and dizziness. Chinese health authorities eventually determined that their illnesses were caused by Salmonella. Over two-thirds of those sickened remained hospitalized as of Sunday, reported CNTV. More than 30 students failed to take their school entrance exams, according to CNTV. Investigations suggest that a stainless steel cooking pot may have been the vehicle that transmitted the bacteria, according to the Global Times. This incident follows a similar one of food poisoning in Sichuan province in April of this year when 292 students at Yingjie Township Central Elementary School in the city of Ziyang fell ill with diarrhea, vomiting and fever linked to food poisoning.
